how many miles have you guys put on your det's that you have swaped in, have the motors treated you guys well when in stock form pretty much. lookin to keep the car pretty reliable but also fun. so lets get some feedback, thanks alot
Installed my motor May 20th 2003, 10,000 miles later. No problems at all. Still running at stock boost 7psi and not even a sign of blue smoke. I made sure I put in a dealer pump before installing. No regrets. Very reliable and good gas mileage too.
just make sure to replace all wear and tear items: rod bearings, exhaust gaskets (ALL of them, it sucks when they die in the car) and water pump. dont do the rod bearings if you dont know what youre doing.
