Yeah, those iron heads can really take a pounding.
I went for a drive after my cam install and after getting about five miles away, the end cap gasket blew, the coolant dumped, the idiot light went ding-ding-ding, and the engine bay started steaming.
The Northstars can run without coolant*, but not the 3800. The two of us in the car used some creative driving to get it back home. No permanent damage, either. Glad to hear yours survived, too.
