Whats up with the missinformation in all the V6 Mag articles....

I was reading yet another magazine this weekend about the v6 3.8 and they once again listed the specs wrong....

they stated that in 01 the v6 was boosted from 190hp and 225tq to 193hp and 245tq... this is wrong it would be nice but wrong... where are they getting these specs at?

And I think it's 195 in '04. And will be in 202 in '05.

It's amazing how they only gained 10ft-lbs of torque with that head and intake swap. And they just gained 5HP in '96 with playing with the electronics. 2:

And then my car will be old technology. It'll be like the unloved fox bodies with four cylinders.
