yeah id say its definetely exhaust, thats why GPs are rated at 200 and Bonnevilles are rated at 205...a friend of mine has a 98 Intrigue and it also seems to rev up a heck of alot faster than mine, of course shes not pushin 150 grand on the odometer either.

The engine is actually going in my '96 (mom'* car is the '95). I'm replacing the engine for a few reasons:

Had the upper gasket leak. Fixed.
Didn't fix the lower gasket...coolant still in oil.
Meantime, tensioner goes out.
One day, start car, oil filter gasket blows out. Change oil...no oil pressure (pump?)
Car has clocked 144,000 miles.

To me, it was just more worth it to replace than rebuild.

Some Intrigues got the 200 or 205 hp motor, but the standard 3800 in the Intrigue, GP SE, and Regal only had 195 due to the TB being smaller, and PCM tuning.

From what the GP guys have said, the 3800 used in the GP SE, Intrigue, and Regal LS (?), all had a different/smaller TB, and a different PCM.
Basically hear-say.

I'm 100% sure that the throttlebody is not smaller and i'd be suprised to see much diffrent tuning on the pcm.
