Wind up to redline a 3.0 VTEC and GMs 3.8( stand back, it might blow!) and you will see.
The 3.8 doesn't need to wind out to 6K RPMs to produce its power. And I don't understand why the 3.8 would "blow" at redline.
Exactly. Say what you will about the 3800's refinement, but it's durability is beyond reproach. The fact that it's been used in police Impalas successfully for years now is a huge testament to that. I doubt that there is a more demanding environment for an engine than that on the road.
