How many miles has your LS1 gone without having to overhaul it?
A little over a year ago I got my 2002 B4C with roughly 210,000 on it, and about a week before I picked it up, I posted a thread asking about using seafoam on an engine with 200,000+ miles on it. I got some helpful insight and ended up seafoaming my engine and had great results! The engine idled smoother, and sounded better. I was just re-reading my post and found an interesting question (especially since my car will turn over 250,000 by the end of this week), and after reading the "Official odometer/mileage thread" it made me wonder even more.
This is the quote from over a year ago

i am wanting to get one though with new cam and heads at the same time just not ready to pull the motor out.... never rebuilt a motor before so i want to study before i do
I know what you mean, at 250k a rebuild is in my future as well, and since the motor will be out and about, may as well add a few extra "goodies" to it
But when the time comes I am also considering swapping in an LS3 or GMPP LS376/480 just depends on $$$ when the time comes
yeah ive looked into the ls3 swap as well but ill prob just go with motor rebuild cam and heads. i enjoy driving my car i really dont care about the hp tourque for the track. yeah dont get me wrong having more than whats out there is nice but man you cant beat just driving around with t top off on a nice day. i really just want it louder and a good lope
I have an 02' SS with 137k that still runs like new. No leaks and I hope to get to at least 200k before a rebuild. I put @ 30k miles a year on her a year so I a hoping for the best.
