A WS6 has 80,000 to over 100K miles would it still run fast like they should? and what kinda problems should i expect to have?

I think it should still run as fast. There are quite a few of LS1 powered car owners whose cars are in that milage range, and I haven't heard anything yet about there being a lost of performance with their cars. The only way that there might be a lost of performance is if there is something wrong with the engine.

It depends alot on who drove it. If it was someone that ran its ballls off then there might be some issues.

mine is still strong with 93000 miles. i sometimes drive it like i stole it but not all the time engine wise no problems(knock on wood) drivetrain and chassis has needed the following: two new rear ends (dealer set my first replacement up wrong),one transmission mount, new wheels(stock 17 polished 5 stars were not taken care of and the rear two were bent...on a side note the car was repoed from a female in Kansas and she smoked the rear tires off...my kind of gal ) and new control arms(see sig) otherwise just the normal things like plugs, wires (still need to do those) and brakes, need those now too.

Awwww.. what happened? You had a picture in your sig from this ebay auction!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...&category=6427

Why dont you actually get a T/a before you go on posting that you are "undefeated"? and asking all these bench racing questions.

And why on earth would you have problems with those miles when you only have 31,000 on your car

It's been pretty obvious since day one this kid was full of crap, I wondered how long it would take before someone finally posted that they caught on to his

Your like my cousin, he has 1 acre and his dad has 2400, but when he takes a drink or two he will tell people "My dad and I have over 2400 acres."
I guarantee you that car isn't in your name at 16, you aren't allowed to own a car in any state at 16, you aren't old enough to complete a contract that will hold up in a court. So it must be daddy's or mommy's- that is if you really have one, funny how you keep changing pictures of your ride as soon as others spot the same pictures from ebay and such - and what about the post you put up a couple of days ago saying you needed a fairly resonable costwise solution to some problem with the so called T/A because you had just spent all your money fixing your caddy. Which now you admit isn't yours.

You are so full of gay crap you don't think anyone else can see it - now you've ended up being by yourself.
And yes, we do get it.

What a moron.

Why bother posting if you really don't have this car?

You can own any car at age 16 you just can't qualify for car loans at age 16.

Nevermind... no redemption available... quote from the car domain site of his.

Quote:
Came with 605 RWHP and did 0-60 times in under 4 and have top speeds over 200. I think the quarter was mentioned in the 11's. I wanted the car in the worst way but at the last minute someone bid 1,000 over me and i couldnt get it in time. So Sad . But heres some pics. The Final Price Was 82,150
So you bid $81,150 at the age of 16?

The "cadillac of his" isnt in the same driveway or same house for that matter. The truck is another eBay picture. Wow man, you really went out of your way to lie. Why? People on this board have had these cars for years. Its not going to impress anyone when someone buys a t/a. Its nothing new to them. I understand that is the car you want but why pretend you have it and them come on here trying to make people believe you have one? Do you need some friends? Because this isnt how to get them. You could have made more by saying you didnt have one but you were a f-body enthusiast.

Sorry Mods if you dont want me typing this I will gladly delete it w/o question.

That definitely says he's lying. It would have made more sense if he just would say he doesn't have one, but is an FBody enthusist thats if he really is even that. After getting owned by everyone here I'd be suprised if he ever posted again.
