    Yeah, and don't forget to factor in that only a small percentage of owners even frequent forums like this and know what is being talked about regarding their engines. In all honesty, I am not sure that the oil eating issue is as wide spread as it would seem from the forums. My dealer claims no one has had an issue. But he is not a mega dealer in a major city. Like I stated. It was cost effective to reduce the risk of a problem. But the oil eating issue was secondary to my wanting all 8 cylinders working all the time.
    Hey there, VA, what do ya' say? How many vets did you kill today?

    thanks for all the responses. i have to agree that most people who dont have the issue have no reason to talk about it. not all people who like and or drive chevy's post on forums let alone just one. i figured the positive side needed some exposure lol
