I picked my Av up Monday night, they dealer had finshed putting in the new 8100, so now its breakin time. Hard for me not to hammer it, after driving the impala for 5 days, just not the same get up and go. I am varying speed, no cruise, no full throttle blasts, basically driving like I am 85 yrs old. Oh by the way, I saw the GM invoice for the motor it listed for over $7000. Another thing I have noticed already is the sound after a cold startup in the morning, this sounds like a diesel too, no front crank pulley noise and squeak like the old one, so time will tell.
