In addition to the cooling system a fella I spoke with recently said the -3's also had roller timing chains instead of fiber cam gears and forged internals too. When I did the V/C Gaskets I also noticed rotaters under the exhaust valve springs. The engine does not have a ton of power (170 - 180 hp) but it's geared so low (6.8:1) it does fine. It spins at 4200 rpm @ about 57 mph. When I drove it home I ran 55 - 60 mph for about 5 hours straight.
