I know the 3.8 V-6 extremely well. That's the engine that's in my 1981 Buick.

I have a 455 in my Buick, and I have a 2.56 rearend ratio. I wish it could be even taller.

Someday I'm going to figure out how much fuel it takes to spin the engine at 2000 RPM, because I bet that is at least 1/2 of my fuel consumption at 60 MPH.
