Re: American V6's

Just to clarify a minor point(I hate to waste bandwidth, sorry):

The Chrysler 3.5L 24 valve SOHC V6 that is found in the top of the 
line Vision/Concorde/Intrepid/LHS is, if fact an American design.

1. 90 degree block
2. cast iron block
3. SOHC 24 valve configuration
4. C&D said it was chrysler made(not that it was mitsu designed)

Why would this engine be a Mitsu motor when it shares none of the 
design elements of the Mitsu V6's.  Like, most of the Mitsu V6's are 
3.0 and DOHC why did they enlarge the engine to 3.5L and NOT use the 
DOHC head on the engine? Or, why base the engine on one's with an 
aluminum block only to make this one from iron?  It would not make 
sense.  Therefore, this was actually Chrysler's first foray into 
building a "world class" engine, not a Mitsu.  Sorry!
