You mean the Series II upper intake manifold?

Yes, but its a newer car and the upper intake usually begins to fail at around 90-100 000 miles

No problemo, but it never hurts to stay ahead of the game, drop in your 180 T-stat on your moms new car ASAP, also the plastic Series II engine cover traps a lot of generated heat, either vent it or remove it completely

I have the 01 and the mechanic told me that 1/2 way through 01 they put a stronger version on the cars...but there is no way visually to know what one you have. Sounds like a load of crap to me...but I am hoping that GM has made some changes on the newer cars.

So far so good, but mine is still has few clicks on the clock.

Has anyone had cases of a failure in a 01?

Its probably a bit to early to tell for the 01 intakes. Give it a couple more years and the horror stories of ruined 3800'* may or hopefully may not roll in.

The intake manifold on the 92-94 Series I NA is plastic yet you never hear about Series I intake failures...hmmm, I guess the General learned its lesson
