: miles on your lt1

how many miles are on your lt1 powered car. im just wondering how long they can be expected to last and what kind of problems people have had with them. the roadmaster that i am looking at has 161,000 miles and the guy just had the water pump and optispark replaced in the past year.

Mine is only 156K and running beautiful. No leaks except for power steering, no oil usage, and is the quietest idling engine I have ever heard.

Sounds like a solid car you are looking at. Those are the only two "issues" I know of, and the water pump only because you have to take it off to get to the Opti. You are there, just replace it....

Plenty of 9C1 Caprice LT1's are still out there with 300k plus.
