These motors are very well built. There'* no doubts there. Series 2 are also built well and can go just as long. The S1'* IMO had some things that made them last well and it'* not a bad thing, but a few items that help make a motor durable are sand bagging on the factory'* part.

S1'* aren't known to flow well, make a ton of power etc. They run well, they run forever and beating on them doesn't typically effect them adversly because they can't give much more than they do each day. That middle of the line space of good power with plenty of restrictions etc keep it solid for a long time.

I cammed my motor at 186K miles.

not just that but some of the gears arent heat treated... I believe its 4th gear. and the plates have a tendancy to let go and not grip after 120,000 miles of stop and go traffic which isnt that bad but dont usually last as long as the motors

I bought my 94 with 278K miles on it. I drove it an extra 12K and then I started tearing it apart. The engine was losing oil pressure. Allegedly, the previous owner didn't do any maintenance aside from 3 engine rebuilds and 4 transmission rebuilds, just about. So I guess you could say that a completely unmaintained Series 1 L67 lasts about a third of 278K miles before you have to rebuild it. That'* not so bad, you know, 93K miles with a few oil changes.
