Yep that was me, and I did have an LS1 in my '92 9C1 (police package). The motor was not the original, it was a rebuilt version from California that was installed in my Caprice at about 150k (right before I bought it). I loved the power of that motor, but it was a thirsty one and only averaged about 15mpg. Plus the rear end was out of alignment and apparently there was no way to adjust it and I kept burning thru rear tires. It was my 3rd car too, so after about a year I sold it and put the money toward my house down payment.

'92 LS1 for awhile and it was pretty sweet.
Are you sure you don't mean LT1. I don't think the LS1 even came about untill 97 or 98'.

Lets do this...

The LS1 was an alluminum engine that was a SFI 5.7 V8 it came out in 1997


The LT1 came out in 1992 and was an MFI 5.7 HO V8..

Good Luck... And I have seen a few of the LT1 make some nice power...

the caprices are ugly.. very ugly... the impala'* are about the opposite though.. it'* kinda funny how they are both essentially the same body style. Go with the SSE.. much better looking car.
