Why do i always hear about the 92'* burning valves, and my aunts got a '92 lesabre with like 200k miles on it and it runs like a million bucks. And my aunt isn't tip-top on maintenance either. Maybe just got lucky?

Climate and driving style have alot to do with it. When the topic author starts talking about modding, it becomes an issue.

In addition, not ALL 92 L27'* were EGR-less. Just most.

Depends on your point of view. The L36 can benefit from a cooler stat more than any other engine when you consider the UIM failures.

Heh, what happens if you don't do this...

I didn't, and i have been running it for probably 2 or 3 months (I don't drive that much though). My temps seem to be a bit low...but have had no other side effects. Ideas?
