Knowing how the 3.3L engine is for other members, including myself. When my 2.7L dies, I may try and find a 3.3L engine and have some boost (turbo/SC) in it to make it have the same getup-and-go as the 2.7 or better.
That and have a few modifications done to the engine as well.

I don't know if this has been done. I know I could just as easily go for 3.2L or 3.5L, I'm still very partial with the 3.3L engine.

3.3 for life! I've own 4 cars with the 3.3 and it's been by far the most reliable and economical motor so far. That's why it took me 6 months to find a short base minivan with the 3.3 in it (very rare, most got the crummy 3.0 V6).

Yes, and I've driven several other 1st gens with the 3.5's. Honestly, I can't really tell the differece between the two powerwise. The 3.5 has a bit more get up and go, but at highway speeds they are almost identicle.

A 3.5 HO on the other hand...now that thing is quick. Though I'm not a lead foot, plus I loathe timing belts!

see i've never driven a 3.3 and could not honestly say if one was better then the other, i've always just assumed they were weaker cause they were the base model motor, but since i've been on the boards and heard how so many people say there bullet proof, i've been looking for a 3.3 trep to get as my second car.
