Not listening to advice on this forum about five years ago about not buying a LS1 instead of a LT1. I ended up taking a HUGE hit on it before I traded it for a LS.

Not putting a cam in when I was doin an engine swap. I threw another stock longblock in, but funds were tight so it's not really a big deal.

When my dad sold his 2002 SOM SS vert with 10k miles a few years back. On my car, probably rushing into an exhaust alittle. I still like the LM2 but i wish i would have got a GMMG.
