The battle between what's better, pushrods or over-head cams, will forever wage. Those that love the simplicity, cost and weight effectiveness will fight feverishly with the "high-tech" abbreviators like VVTI and DOHC. Personally, I think both engines have their plusses and minuses and belong in their perspective cars. I can cohabitate with both. One of GM's pushrod workhorses is the 3800 V-6. This article traces its history from 1962 in the Buick Special, to the 2005 Series III in the Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Good horsepower, gobs of torque at a decent price, the 3800 has served GM well, but will soon move over for the 3900 that will power the G6 GTP for 2006.
