    Mine is at around 235,000 and still runs great. Had a few issues here and there but nothing deeper than the valve covers.

    Just rolled over 232k on my 90 today - while pulling my 4500lb boat! Amazing how long these things will last if they are taken care of :bow::bow::bow:

    My 75' has over 199k never been opened up that goes for the tranny too. I guess thats why we all talk so highly about our GM's . It's tuff to try and beat these drivetrains.:waytogo: :k5: :crewcab: :burb: :truck: :usaflag:

    Got 233K on my 89 blazer and i'm building a new engine at the moment as i know this one is tired even though it still runs good. My engine has only had the intake manifold gasket changed and i did that about 3 years ago otherwise it has never been apart.
