well my response to that is:
1. mine is prechamber(one of the last prechamber engines in fact) so way less particles much better swirl inside combustion chamber than ever possbile on direct injection, this also makes these stock engine possbile to rev to about 6000-7000 rpm with relative ease if you adjust the governor (try that with direct injecton diesel HAHA!) but the downside to this is these engines are less fuel efficient and more complicated/expensive to build

2.no particule filter so the particles are big enough to get caught by your Cilium in your nose and throat before reaching the lungs the thing is just because something is invisible to your naked eye doesnt make it gone or harmless, it might actually be the oposite
