I've had my ss for 2 years with no problems whatsoever. currently at 53000 miles, just wondering how many miles you guys think the engine is good for with good care? I like to keep my vehicles until they die.

Once again I say that it depends on how you drive it and how you take care of it.

150,000 if well taken care of.
And then some, if you take care of it, and replace the coolant on a regular basis.

I'm not doing a cam til I blow mine so I hope not 150K! I'm at 63K and the motor feels great, trans has its moments but it's all original and running good.

I've seen LSx engines last 300k. A buddy of mine used to work construction, and they had a few '99 5.3L half tons with 290k+, untouched motors. They still ran well, and didn't use much oil.

I got 60,000 miles out of mine! I think every motor is different but if well taken care of it should last 150k no problem.

2006 purchased new.
130,000 miles still original transmission also. Change oil going by the DIC at 5% or less, usually 12,000 -15,000 miles depending on how much stop and go driving. Doesn't use any oil. Service tranny every 50,000 -60,000 miles.
