In regards to the 3800 V6, it was a great engine. The LS cylinder head is better with its cathedral  shape and revs better. The 3800 was EFFICIENT, but at low rpms. 

Yes, but imagine a 3800 "Series IV" with some LS head treatment love. Woulda loved to see it but they just moved to the 60* DOHC platform for the V6's.

The 6.0 may be a dinosaur and a dinosaur is in the reptile family.  Some reptile species are known to outlive humans therefore making the title of the thread highly accurate when referencing the 6.0 to a dinosaur.  I do believe someone on this forum has their 6.0l, 6l90 combo up to 500,000 miles without major repairs.
