Well you won't believe me but I bought this car ysturday at 230 and at 4 o'clock I called the dealer and told them to come get there car, the pulley that makes all the other pulleys spin(power steering altenator and cooling) came right off the LS1 so I took it back and got my money, I am so disappoint and sadden and a lil discouraged to buy another F-body.


I put 20 miles on it and it was the best 20 miles I have every driven I usaully speed in my grand AM but in the firebird I didn't even want to I am just really disappointed I think I may look at mustangs now and I am not a ford guy.


OH and when it all came off I was doing 45 miles and hour in a two lane road and also hit a school bus(short bus) I E-Braked the **** out of it and went side ways to not hit the bus. I got my check back.

Got it for 8200$ out the door(tax tags) I knew it was to good to be true It had headers no cats and a magnaflow exhaust sounded REALLY good

So, you think that a 10 year old Mustang won't have mechanical problems?

So.....obveously it has been moded. And you want to blame it on the LS1 itself? :confused:
It could have been put through hell with the previous owner.
Just remember that it was the best 20 miles you have ever driven. That you can blame on the manufacturer. ;)

Sounds to me since it has been modded that the person previously put on an aftermarket pulley and didn't replace the bolt like they were supposed to, or didn't put it back in at all.

The problem you had is defintly faulty installation and nothing to do witht he car itself.

The guy who owned it probably took some stuff off in a hurry to trade it in.

Your gonna look at Mustang because you had 1 bad car?

My '92 is full of problems and I will never go back to mustangs again.
