    Friday night Hunter killer

    Hello this is my first post, need opinions. I have the chance to pick up a 2002 Firebird Formula with a 6 speed. It has 86000 miles. It looks ok not great. The engine pulls strong no unusual noises or smoke. The trans is good. The ls1 I have now has 42000 miles and runs good. I want a car that I can run hard so I am looking at this one with the 86000 miles. How many good miles do u guys and Gals think might be left in the engine?? Its on a Chevy dealers lot they have no maintenance records from the previous owner. He is asking 8500 is it worth it?? Everything works and the paint is ok.

    are you getting this one as a second LS1 F-body?

    Many guys have run their cars up to 150k+ with little to no problems. There is still plenty of life in that motor.

    There's about a 15rwhp difference because the 01 - 02 's had the LS6 intake stock...

    I have a 99 with a 188k... Bought it new, beat the sh!t out it everyday and have never made an engine repair. She leaks a little oil, but runs great. Had to rebuild my A4 tranny @ 150k though.

    Mine has about 156K and had to rebuild the tranny (M6) but the car runs strong. I wouldn't be too worried.
