Ford 3.7L dohc V6, what do you know about it?

I am very interested in using the 3.7 in an upcoming project and am curious to any known problems with this engine, such as cam sprockets failing like the SHO engines,poor valve springs like the Lima v6 or what ever.

I assume it has a weak spot and would like to avoid it by fixing it before failure.

hard to work on.

Most mechanics I know don't like to work on the newer Ford engines.
