Gen III LS1 Engine Reliability
Yeah just wondering after reading a number of LS1 members complaints about there engines, i'm wondering is there anyone who owns an LS1 powered car thats done 150,000km+ with no dramas and running stronge like a traditional V8.
Seems all the guys are getting piston slap, smoke, oil drinking at like under 50k.
Some of you LS1 guys may be able to shed some light.
