Can you detail "everything has been checked"?
Have you checked fault codes?

210,000k on my l98, just a dead injector, otherwise smooth running.
Then he has to keep paying labour and parts for whatever they try next. Exactly what he wants to avoid unless it fixes it.
Buy a decent ve, do what you can afford now, save, do more, save, do more. That way you will enjoy each step and improvements on your way.
Does it have the 6l80 gear box? The 6 speed auto? They have a known issues between 2 and 3. Hard shifts/flaring/ laggy. Put up with it or you can...
Sounds like it should be fine anyway. Pretty tame mods
Unplug the battery, light turns off. Problem solved.
There's a thing somewhere on here of someone that did it
Sounds nasty but looks good. Sorry I have input
If you get it off a private buyer, you will soon spot if it's someone who cares about it or it's just an a to b item. Buy from someone who enjoys...

Seems good, what's wrong with it?
How does an air intake "kick in"?
