in an AU cab the other day that had 700 or so, still seemed to be going pretty good.

my laser is about to tick over 400, still going strong which is great, considering you have to drive rev the tits off it just to keep up with traffic

I remember when i was about 15, i got into an XC cab and this sucker had about 980 on the clock with the original crossflow, and f**k did it show, this thing was SLUGGISH.
I said mate why don't you throw an engine in, he said why it's still running good, i'll wait till it turns over 1 mil lol.

never seen an ef/el cab that had blown its head gasket. and the old mans been driving cabs for 10+ yrs now.

remember cabs are always at working temp so don't have the same kind of cold/hot life of normal cars so things don't wear in the same amt of k's.
