The 3.8 has about 2 years left and then it will be history...
But several years back there was thinking about degrading the quality of their engines as some of them were lasting far tooo long.... The 3800 was one of those engines that just lasted too long... Why buy a new car, when the old car does just as good on fuel, burns no oil, starts in the frigid cold mornings and you have no $400 a month payments?
Both of my cars are still going... We have seen 3800'* with as much as 300,000+ miles on them and 5 psi diffrence in compression between cylinders...A local junkyard tested that 3800 with 280,000 miles on it... A gentleman bought that very motor and installed it in his Bonneville, and as they were telling the story, they said they had seen him and the car was already over 300,000 and still going.... This was before I found BC... Yeah a ways back...
But an intake breaking the engine..... Um I think the majority has disproven that theory
