Hmm....I don't think I agree with you on that one Bill. Seems that the SSEis have their own host of electrical issues that the SEs don't seem to have (simply because they have more features, which = more failure points).
Furthermore, the killer mileage stories of 200,000 plus on a SC isn't heard of as often as on a NA SE. There are many on this board who have 200K and even one that'* close to 400K on a NA SE!! Don't know of any SSEi with that high mileage....
I would say that the upper intake issue on the Series II NA is well worth the trade off for the longevity of a NA. Plus, with electrical gadgets, that'* less that can go wrong!
