I had planned for 500K on the OEM motor but it wasn't in the stars......bad fuel or a tuning anomaly cause a detonation meltdown 2 years ago!!

Upon disassembly we found the motor looked practically unused......cylinder bores, rod and mains, timing chain tensioners, cams....everything looked GREAT at 256K miles except pistons 6,7 & 8.....broken ring lands!!

New forged motor doing fine but not accumulating miles like I used to so she stay in the garage mostly!!
