Kinda late now, but still, Welcome to the club! I know you'll enjoy it!

3800'* are very tough. I will agree that IMO they are 2nd to the SBC. Pushrods are the way to go IMO, and I'll probably be driving cars with pushrod engines for a long time.

I look forward to some of your future posts.

Welcome to the club Giterdun. Your club name tells us a bit about you.

Glad to have another member who may actually be older than I am.

Hey ! I'm young at heart

Now if my worn out body will hold up as well as my 220,000 SSEI, I'll
be good to go.

Thanks again for the welcome.

humble opinion that the two best engines from GM are the SB Chevy and
the 3800 V-6. I've had a lot of both and I have to admit that pushrods are
not outdated.

In the last 12 years, I have bought, worked on, and shipped 760 GM 3800'* of
which 245 were Bonnevilles. Of the 760 3800'*, only five motors have failed.
The most common problem we have found is the crank sensor. This is an
easy fix though. The other is the dreaded plastic intake. What
were they thinking ?

All in all, you guys have good taste in cars. I'm glad to be part of the club.
I'm glad we see eye to eye.... Welcome to the club...

I couldn't have said it any better either... SBC and 3800'* Rule
