Twins would be asking for trouble not reliability.

I'd buy it, won't drop much over the years if cared for. Look at what a high mileage lbz sells for...

no way.... still got the dead pedal to contend with (it becomes very apparent in az heat even with the new update in the truck), CP4 crap and available tuning is good but its far from refined due to lack of tables and how everything intertwines. plus its 50hp short of an L5P.

If he wants to tune the thing and keep it reliable, i wouldnt even suggest buying a 40-50k LML, jsut stick with the truck he has. build the trans, put twins on and put a tune in that is about 400-450rwhp max, engine oil cooler and your off and running. That is all assuming the fuel system is in good shape, mechanically everything else is good and so on.

Well. I guess we differ on opinion then. Lots of people in the know hate the L5P, seems it's a disconnected turd. Hence why I kept my 16...

Thats just crazy how different people get different feelings from same truck.. Stock for stock I would drive the L5p over any other truck without even having to think about it.. The transmission shifting strategy is one of the reasons too, I loved it.
