    general opinion is 60-100K. 60 is at the low end, anything mroe than 100 is pretty good. keep up with your oil changes if you want it to last longer, and if you modify the dump pipe, get a banjo bolt so you don't flood it with oil.

    I think it's luck of the draw a bit, too. My first one died the day after my 10k service. Bone stock. Second one has lasted another 115k with more and more mods added and no smoke yet.

    The life of the engine: 260,000K
    Moderately modded to ~215Kw/415Nm by around 90,000K
    Wasn't real healthy at the end although engine running fine was drinking oil and some of that was turbo.
