The power steering fluid serves to lubricate and cool the pump bushings.

If you mean use the differential housing, the answer is NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Never with aluminum differentials for lifting. They are nothing like the old cast iron pumpkins in strength.

Many had their lifters replaced per TSB.

This is not a conversion to LS3 but a replacement of defective lifters with an improved design.

They could make an eight cylinder version of the current 3.6, but it would be better if they just switched all the OHV V8 cars to a turbo V6.

I would love to see a quad cam turbo V6 replace the pushrod V8.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but check out the Indy car power plant. That should be the paradigm for muscle cars going forward.

It is highly unlikely that you are experiencing detonation without the check engine light coming on, so I would be suspecting something mechanical in the exhaust.

As the 2018 model year ends, how's the A8 issue?

Is the shudder gone now?

I'm thinking about ordering a 2019 V6 with A8, and hoping the issue is now behind us.
