i hear the lt1 have some waterpump location issues.
but damn, the lingenfelter is badass, very much one of the best rides ever made.is it somewhat streetable?
The LT1 waterpump isn't the issue, it's in the normal small block Chevy location. But, for some reason the engineers placed the ignition distributor/optispark between the waterpump and the block. With this placement if the waterpump leaks it will take out the distibutor. To me the optispark was a great idea, just bad placement.
The Lingenfelter TT drives just like a normal C5, even gets ~28 mpg on the highway. But when you hit the gas hold on, it has gone almost sideways at 70 mph!!
