The Vulcan 3.0 Isnīt a good engine?
It's a crappy engine, it is slow, it has bad heads, the timing cover leaks, the syncro can cause it to seize in 7 seconds. Only buy one if it is cheap.

I discretely laid a bet on the table a few days ago concerning the date of guillotine usage. The only real remaining issue was, the need (?) for more $$$ should be result be a life sentence rather than a short stay in jail. I think it's time to finalize that deal, I really do, the fun and laughs will far exceed the monetary value no matter what happens!

A Tech told me the Cat design can cause the burnt exhaust valve issue. The valve issue is not as prevalent on the 3.0 in the Taurus.

It wouldn't hurt to put new precat o2 sensors in it.

Eventually the burden of the liability will out weight what little benefit the a$$et brings. IMHO.
