hey guys, i am seriously wondering about spending any more money on my clubby, it has 197000 now so how long will these motors last? i want to put a cam and get a mafless tune done soon but is it really worth it?

They are bullet proof if maintained.

I always keep my cars serviced regularly, I drive it hard once in a while, I don't redline itnor anything or
Do burnouts, so would it hold up if I were to cam it and tune?

If it's running well now then just do it. Not too many stories of them letting go without serious abuse over on the LS1 forums and I suspect that's a group that's harder on their engines than average.
