    I dont know if my pump is stock or not. Im going to a big nice door when I get a chance and see.

    She whines.. really loud, and I havent put a fuel pressure guage on her so IDK.

    I have replaced all my speakers with the stock fits from walmart.. Pioneer, kenwood and some quality Boss'.etc and put filters on them to get the highs out of the subs. I have crackling issues with the tweeters but they will soon be replaced.

    The speakers do not last long at all actually.

    Calipers brackets.. bottom slide pin ALWAYS freezes up.

    Found this out when I painted my calipers this spring. Fortunately, I caught it in time to prevent any ancillary damage. I cleaned the pins and guides and then used the sticky green synthetic caliper grease for re-assembly.

    Stock rotors warp easy, so I switched to drilled rotors and Hawk pads. My hatch did not always pop open properly so I did the modification from installuniversity.com and piggybacked another spring on and she launches up like an MRFR! Oh yeah stock clutch sucks balls, when I race I have to wait in between runs cause my pedal gets mushy and feels like it going to stick on floor.

    I'll keep an eye on them. We only drive it 20-50 miles per week. It is garage kept and not driven in inclimate weather if we can help it.

    I am the original owner of my 99 ls1 T/A and have 107K miles on it. I must say that almost everything that has gone wrong with the car has been a common problem found on the board. From the rear ends, to stock clutch, to leaking PS pump, water pump, fuel pump, window motor, stripped headlight gear... so on and so forth. I will confirm what many others have said by saying that I have not had one problem with the engine at all. The ls1 is made solid. As for some of the other things on the car... not so much.

    well, It didnt look like that when I was driving, I went through the middle of the road, but it ended up being to deep, so I TRIED to pull to the side road, and that was even deeper, so I got fucked. I would never try to drive through that had I of known. Its not like I wanted to almost fuck my car up.
