    Post How good is your Ls1 Lasting? Over 100k?

    How well is your Ls1 doing over 100k miles? I've heard about these cars being about to last for a good while like hitting 200k miles and still running. Mine has 103,000 now and i'm having problems left and right. Probably because I bought it with 88k on it. My cousin has an Lt1 with around 150k on it doing pretty well. But anyway how is yours doing?

    What probs are you having with it? If the problems are nothing major, or even if some are...they most likely could have been prevented with preventive maintenance. I just clicked over 85k and no probs with the motor....had to replace all the rear bearings awhile back but that's it so far.

    I bought my 2000 Z28 in october with 81000 miles and i now have 90000

    it ran 13.3@104 MPH I gauge the mechanicalcondition of a engine by the 1/4 mile time and speed. I think mine is good.

    My car runs smooth, it does not shake or rattle or squeek.

    the 100,000 mile mark is usually where people start having problems. It seems to be the magical #. Id say that it would be a good idea to get a rebuild once your reach around that mileage.

    Yea, I have 134K and this motor has never left me sitting. I am still running in the high to mid 11's at the track as well. I'm totally impressed with how well the motor has held up.

    98 Formula with 164,000. Nothing but oil, spark plugs, clutch and axle bearings, and tires. The is by far the most dependable drive train me or anyone in my family has owned. Seriously, I've been real impressed. I also have a 96 LT1 with 167,000 its had some more serious stuff like waterpump twice and gaskets for oil leaks etc... but it still runs strong. the 98 does not burn oil or anything. the LT1 pretty much just leaks it

    I just rolled 75000 and all I've had replace were the muffler bearings. I have seen an LS1 camaro with over 200000 and he hadn't had a single problem out of it expect for replacing the battery.

    I'm at 114k right now, and all I've done has been basic maintenence. They really are very reliable cars, contrary to what most Honda drivers would like you to beleive. And I do drive my car pretty rough, and it has been to the track a bunch of times.

    113k here now and only major parts replaced was the rear axle bearings and the axles.
    The bearings done some galling on the axles, I have moser axles in the rear now along with new bearings.

    I have Blistien HD's on all four and 1LE springs in the front, installed them at 38k and still going good.

    I'm keeping this car as long I can, there's no other new cars I like on the market and I'm saving up for a house now.

    156k here. Nothing at all knock on wood. I need a belt though.

    MY t56 needs a rebuild though...But that's due to the previous owner being a tool.

    I'll be in the 11s this summer....We'll see how it does.
