    Don't worry, that wont happen much if you get an LS1. After you get it, you're only a few mods away from being able to hang with about anything you'll see on a day to day basis. No more hot chicks in hot cars running away from you.
    What kind of mods do you suggest?

    Mine was 16,000 and I used a $2,000 car trade in for it. So basically $14,000. You can find Autos very cheap if that's your thing. I HATE automatics, so I deffinetly prefer to pay more for 6spd.

    I was told by Jeff at Carolina Auto Masters that there is something up with the electronics on 97-98 LS1's, something about them being hard to tune. For best value, I would look at a 99-02 Z28 or Formula. But, if you can't live without an SS or WS6, then go for it, but you will pay extra, on yearly taxes and initial price.

    Don't be scared of mileage. Mine had 88K on it, full bolt-ons, and gears, got it for 8K. I have done many doughnuts, took it to the track several times, and a sh*t-ton of street racing. I pulled old nitrous wiring out when I put a new CD player in it. She has been abused, then I laid down abuse for another 12K miles.

    Result? Not a drop of oil anywhere, not a single tick, purrs like a kitten, no smoke whatsoever. When I put the heads on it a couple months ago, there was little, if any, wear on the cylinders. Gotta love that LS1.

    The rear-end has crapped on me twice though, why does there always have to be a catch?

    I have an LT1 and have still never had any trouble passing anyone I want! Chip, filter, exhaust, shift kit, and posi and boy does she go! I've done 148 mph like its nothing and the only guys to even challenge me were one guy in a 1995 Z28 (with my buddy in the car I just about ran him over with him starting first, no room to pass) and another guy in a Saleen S351, whom I didn't get to find out an outcome. But seriously, the average car on the street can't compare to any f-body with more than 300 horsepower. It's an awesome feeling.

    That must be a one of a kind motor. The vtech changes to a second cam profile. I don't think you can have 3 of them.

    I know there is a 3 stage one, but I don't think it made it's way to the US yet. I had a S2000 and when the Vtec kicked in at about 6500 rpm's it was almost like hitting a nitrous button. The power kicked way up and the sound of motor was like hitting high blend on a blender. That was only a two stage. 1st for normal driving and 2nd for high rpm.

    i think a 2600lb car with 260-270hp to the ground can take a stock ls1 that weighs 800 more lbs and has only bout 40-50 more hp

    ever heard of tourqe steer????? was bad at STOCK levels...and its not nearly as aerodynamic as the z....and a STOCK z is closer to 350 flywheel horse compared to the 260-270.........a stock 6 speed ls1 would take it hands down......off the line AND top end ..and thats with 5k plus worth of mods to the rsx with NO supporting mods
