Cast pistons, powerded metal rods, same internal parts as all other, and rode hard and put up wet, is this a Camaro, or a Caprice, one has alum. heads,

they might be rode hard, but they are well built and well maintained.. when i dug into the LT1 that i took out of my 94 Caprice cop car, it looked almost brand new inside except for some slop in the timing chain.. the cylinders had no ridge and i could still see the crosshatch pattern from when the block was honed. every bearign looked almost brand new. this was an engine with 227,000 miles on it.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

corvettes got 4 bolt main LT1 and LT4 engines, F and B bodies got 2 bolt mains.

Thanks for the answeres I did pull the pan its a 2 bolt, I knew the rods were good for street performance just wasnt sure about the pistons,, the motor is as clean as a new one on the inside,, it would be nice to know what oil was used

That depends a LOT on the particular city's maintenance and whose foot rests on the go-fast pedal...
