It´s good that Achates have CGI in the block to withstand the high pressure. Multi-Cylinder Modular Development Engine The A48-3-16 shares most of the power cylinder with the A48-1 and in an effort to reduce the development schedule, many components are compatible. Similar to the A48-1, the A48-3-16 is designed for a peak cylinder pressure of 200 bar with overload conditions of 220 bar. The block was cast from compacted graphite iron (CGI). p 8 http://achatespower.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/MTZ_2014_Final.pdf
This might be a good thing for the Swedish Company Sintercast as the are wordleading in making CGI with quality and the massive compression in this engine 56:1 requires CGI. http://www.sintercast.com/corporate/history
