    Unfortunately that does'nt really mean anything since you're not using a K&N... If you're getting a MAF code then there is likely something wrong with it .. A visual inspection is okay but there's no real way to determine anything by simply looking @ it.. Especially if the problem is internal and/or something that can't be seen with the naked eye. That's why you have/had it scanned.. If CRCing it has no effect then replacement is about the only option there is..Good luck

    To add... @ some point pre 2000 the rings for the 3800-II were changed.. This was done to combat the 3800-II premature cyclinder wall wear.. Now ANYONE running an early 3800-II should'nt start to panic or even worry about it.. The change was'nt significant enough to warrant going nuts over.. Many of the harder ring L36's are STILL on the road.. This could contribute to the 3800 noticable oil consumption @ mostly WOT since oil burn is minimal @ normal cruise (engine in top gear and running around say 55-75ish mph @ 1500-2500 rpms)... It's a puttputt thing "heavy touring car" motor all low end not really happy screamin when in stock form.. It's been rumored a totally gutted bolt on l36 camaro can hit high to mid 13's which is basicly stock.. If it is true it most likely was a y87 car with the better gear ratio.. imho

    Weight reduction is always good.

    Check it out, I got to drive my friends new SS with the traction control off. I love the new one but it need to be louder, its downright quiet and calm. It needed more throat. He's got a K&N Intake and plans to get headers/exhaust.
