Read the last paragraph more closely. This bulletin is for VIN codes that have a problem with exhaust seats more often. It states other engines besides the D,T, and Z have problems more often with intake seats or both. I may have that backwards.
I have read several Dodge forums trying to figure out if I have a ticking time bomb under the hood. There seems to be no definitive answer for why the Gen 3 Hemi drops valve seats. People know the interference fit is bad, they know overheating seems to contribute, some say MDS is to blame.
Some Magnums, Chargers,Rams, XKs, etc run forever without problems. Some die with 50k on the odometer.
Your VIN indicates you have a 5.7 Hemi Multiple Displacement Gasoline engine. Invest in a crystal ball or some Edelbrock heads for a Gen 3 hemi.
I think I'm going to save up and get the Edelbrock heads, shorty headers, and better exhaust. Hopefully mine doesn't drop a seat before I can scrape the nickels together.
