Looking at purchasing a 2000 Lightning with 66k miles for 11,500. This will be for my daily use, maybe toy with a bit (exhaust, CAI, etc) but not much.

Just curious what some of your the owners thoughts were on this particular year.

only "issue" could possibly be the lack of intercooler core recall being handled


other than that it had a 80mm MAF in stock form so pulley upgrades require a MAF upgrade as well

operator error causes these blow out "issues", even the 6 and 8 thread heads have blow out "issues" from installer error

This. I'm running 15#'s of boost on 4 thread heads without any issues. The two key things needed, besided not cross threading the plugs, is anti-seize, and a torque wrench.
