Yep and I hydrolocked the motor by accident once when the engine filled with coolant :sad5:
Not my fault :roll:

Not sure if the mileage is original or not as we know for sure the hood is replaced but it actually looks like the whole front clip might have been replaced and there are markings on parts of the engine that leads me believe that it is not original

Doesnt matter to me though as long its not dragging and the ground and it shifts gears without slamming its fine for me lol
Also I just had to include a pic of the front seats that seat bottom is the drivers seat. IMMACULATE for that mileage!! :eek2:

Those are definitely encouraging miles. Would be really impressive if everything were original, particularly the transmission.

Idk it is possible that the engine was orignal because the plenum was done in 06 but the previous owner only had it for 3 years but put 90k on it so the plenum was shot.

Is there anyway to see if the engine or tranny are original? Numbers or anything?

Well I was going to say plenum but after all those miles I would hope it has been replaced, lol!

But as you say, it was.

Some manufacturers stamp the VIN on the block/trans case. Not sure if GM does or where it would be if they do.
