    S/c on a high-milage car

    Been talking to a few guys here [thanks Ed Blown and ntimid8r]. Just wondering how many of you guys slapped a blower on your stock cars over 120,000 miles?

    I have about 110k now, by the time I'll have the means/desire to s/c my car, I'll be at about 120.

    Looking at ATI tuner kit from EPP with their install/tune on my all stock [including manifolds] ls1

    A good friend of mine installed a used, albeit good, ProCharger on his '99 LS1 two summer's ago (2005). If I remember correctly, he had close to 120,000 miles on the clock. Understand that the entire install was just temporary until he installed a 402. To this day, he's yet to even purchase that 402...

    Although I'm not one to recommend slapping on a blower with rings having that many miles on them, I was there when he ran his final compression check for the seasons end (a few months back). Not one cylinder showed any signs of failure, and he pushed that thing hard! Now of course, he's in the midst of rebuilding the engine for the season coming, not because it needed it, but just to be sure...
