107,000 on my 96 SSEi. It had a lot of torque behind it though.

No, our low-end torque is murder on transmissions. That'* the difference between the L27 and L67.

I guess I can chime in on this. I have only 93,000 miles on mine. It does shift harder then the '89 ever did (but it has a brand new transmission), but nothing is wrong with it. I think I'm going to get it completely flushed for safety measures at the end of this week. Full service flush too, all the cooler lines and every drop of fluid changed. Nothing wrong with doing this right?

Make sure you have a temp regulator if changing up in size on coolers.

Add to that the extra weight of a full optioned SSEi and it makes it even worse.

i would say it all depends on how hard you beat on it....... if you drive like my grandpa does then it will last 200k but if you drive like most of us on here do then hmm 130-140 sounds about right.....
