Few gtos with 90k+ should i be worried?

I will be getting a Gto soon and almost all of them around here within my price range have 90k miles, I know the ls2 is a great engine but the miles have me worried. What do you guys think?

Not high mileage if the car wasn't beat on too hard.

At the rate mine has been driven in its ~10 years of existence, it would take over 65 years to reach that mileage.

05 IBM M6 w/ 171k miles

My 05 IBM M6 has a 171k miles. Still runs great. I plan on driving it as long as I can. Bought it w/ 2300 miles on it. From my observations here on this forum, the cars that have been kept mostly stock have less issues. That is also my where I am, mostly stock. No engine mods, just regular maintenance.

You certainly drive a lot. I'm at a third that in 10 1/2 years. Stock engines definitely are more reliable but at the rate you're driving you may be looking at an engine refresh in your future.
