    Looking At An LS1 Help Please

    First off Id like to say hey to everyone. Im semi-new here (I started a thread before about another car for sale) but Ive been browsing through here and have picked up some great information. Im in the hunt for a 98-02 LS1 Powered Car which leads this thread to my question.

    My question for this thread is would this car be a good buy?

    Kelly Blue Book it and find out. if you can see the car in person, do so and get it checked out by a local mechanic. looks sharp...

    good luck with the possible purchase...

    I think it's a little high priced even with the mods. I just picked up a 99 SS vert M6 with half the miles for less then what he is asking. I think somewhere around 11k would be more like it and I'd be leaning towards under 11k.

    I paid 13,900 for mine in bone stock trim with right at the same miles as yours. Same package except auto instead of 6speed. Assuming its in flawless shape like mine was, thats a solid price. Buying a car that has already been modded is a double edged sword, you might be getting a good deal if everything was done correctly, or you might be buying someone else's problems. The particular mods that have been done to this car are solid mods and really can't be messed up too much. I will tell you now that the Hypertech tuner is worthless though and I would set it back to stock if you do acquire this car. Whatever route you choose, good luck and I would probably pick this Camaro up for the price, assuming it met my standards.

    I know theres not a lot of performance modifications in that list but what do you think it will be putting down to the wheels?

    every car is different, so just go get it on a dyno. But i would say 310-325 rwhp.

    Thing to remember about mods is they add virtually nothing to the value of your car most of the time they detract from it especially if the car is collectible. That's why you see a lot of people selling their parts and returning their vehicles back to stock.

    Ultimately it's worth what someone will pay for it but remember if you are financing it the bank won't give you more then the book and the book on this car is 11k.

    Also make sure you want a lowered car and deal with the clearance issues that come with it.
