231 V-6 B-Body - Anyone Ever Own One?

I know the majority of ‘80s-era B-Bodies came with the 305 or 307 V-8, but quite a few of them came with the 4.1L 4-bbl V-6, and a few even came with the 231 V-6.

That engine is gutless enough in the lighter G-Body. I can’t even imagine how much of a dog it would be in a B-Body! Anyone have any experience with one they could share?

I had an '83 LeSabre coupe with the 4.1L V6. It was a gutless pile and leaked oil like the Deepwater Horizon but was a nice smooth riding car.

I actually remember riding in a 4.1 LeSabre. It certainly wasn’t a fireball, but didn’t seem awful. For that matter, even the factory 305s/307s weren’t drag demons.
