I know this is a late response, but those HT4100s were the pits. Some of the worst engines GM ever made - ever.

My Grandfather had an '87 Sedan deVille. It went through intake manifold gaskets like a hot knife through butter. And you couldn't run the A/C on a real hot day unless you wanted to cook another manifold gasket.

You could put a 3800 in it and it would be faster, better on fuel, and more reliabile. But no. GM had to create some new fangled small V8 made with two different materials horribly engineered just for Cadillac. And now in 2008 as GM pleads for help from Congress, they can thank themselves in part for those crappy engines why they lost sales for so long.
