wtf this a old topic i have since fixed it... it was human related...


As you can see, he said it was a human related issue. I believe the 3.9L was the better engine out of the 3.2L and 4.1L from the previous models. Not to mention the 4.0L was probably came about due to the 3.9L.

Anyways topic is over now since the problem had been solved.

really this is just getting retarded... you are talking about an engine that let's face it is 20 YEARS OLD....

if i owned a BA or AU or even a ED people wouldn't say stupid s**t... even if i owned a BA or post EA motored car i would of had the same problem from my techniquie being sloppy (prior to now)

queastion how many cc difference is there from an au block not many is there.... the 3.9 has alot of potential when money is put into.....


Mods just lock this thread it is an old topic.... and getting silly

true the 4.0 would have evolved from the 3.9 but because it was the first motor to be fuel injected (i think) it was a trial for the better motor. it was a motor to get the kinks out. sorry to drift off topic but i was just making a joke and some people got offended so they just need to liten up.
