In the V8 group, when a regulator fails, at shut off, a cylinder can fill with gas.  Go to start up, and you've got a (virtually) uncompressable fluid in a cylinder - bam, off go the teeth of the flywheel as the cylinder suddenly stops turning.  Very bad.  I think the V8 pressure regulator is about $60, and is probably the same part we use (but check your part numbers! as we may use higher system pressure).
