ummmmmm......well....we dont want to talk about lifespans....
When you are building that much HP, they are catastrophic bombs waiting to go off.
With my car, Its not nearly so bad. But I still plan to have the engine out once or twice per year for something stupid. The real weak point is the transaxle. I am on my third gearbox in three years. Most of the serious guys have a lot more time and devotion than I do. There are other ex-VW guys on the board that just got tired of R&Ring thier driveline every couple months and moved on to 911's. In fact they are the guys who got me into 911's. (Thanks Roger and Mike).
Its fun playing the sleeper, but time consuming keeping them running.
