The author of that article is full of crap when he sais the V8-6-4 engines had a tendency to explode after extended running in V4 mode... No V8-6-4 ever exploded - it would have made front page news if it did.

What all these "armchair quarterback" authors do not realize is the government regulations strangled the automakers - they had no choice but to comply with engines that were detuned in order to meet the government requirements.
