    Here is some of the common issues that pop up on f-bodies:

    Passenger Window - It dies quicker then the drivers side. Reason is GM ran the + wire to the drivers side and then to the passenger side, by the time it gets there it is under current. There is a cheap ($38) fix from a company called Autotrix. Well worth the $$$, Did mine 5 yrs ago and still have both motors running strong.

    Body flex - When you can, invest in 2pt or 3 pt Subframe Connectors. Our cars are uni-bodies, meaning there is no solid frame from front to rear like most cars, the frame is connected to the body for the front & middle but the compartment area has none. SFC's tie the front & rear together and prevent flexing. There are bolt in and weld in, with bolt in you can always go back and weld in.

    98LS1 - oil pump is weak in it, trust me I know... It will still work fine for daily driving and cruising around but if you are wanting to track it I highly suggest getting either a LS6 oil pump or a Melling 10295 oil pump. You'll see a Melling 10296 but for stock & mild bolt on's stay with the other 2.

    Tune - Check out TunebyFrost.com - he has by far the best mail order tune, even for stock and mild bolt on's like headers.

    Rear - if there is a great weakness on these cars it's the rear 10 bolt. If you're a manual car stay away from Drag Radials or slicks.


    Here is some Tech stickies on other issues and problems that members have come up with fixes.
