    They came with metal washers in the SC in 2008, before that you never know what have happened when buying a used one(because of the ceramic washers). 2008 is the best year to buy, 09-10 have issues with the driveshaft, but if that's been upgraded you're good to go there as well.

    Welcome to the forum!!

    Pre 2006 had issues with exhaust valves and ceramic supercharger washers. Late 06-07 had the valve issues sorted, but still had ceramic supercharger washers. 08+ are good to go.

    Having said that, the overall failure rate of the ceramic washers is quite low. For every failure you hear of, there are many people that have never had issues.
