Car was boosted @ 170K kms -- Motor lasted until 220K kms.... The motor was beat on pretty good before the blower.... for example... 22 degree timing for 4 years (yes I know... lable dumb-*** now.... my fault... but ah well)....

Now, I've got the new motor -- used 94 bottom end, with 50K miles, and head from a '97 with the similar mileage....

Cars now rolling into 235K kms... and doing perfectly fine.....

Dave,

227K miles, but I haven't dynod yet. I am currently at 8 psi, but am turning it up to 12 psi when I get my new clutch and rear end in. I would guess 160-170 hp at the wheels right now. Goal is 200+.

Yep, but it has had the crank replaced by the previous owner after a short nose failure. What kills me is that he didn't go any further than that. Stll has original rings and all. I hit 229K a few weeks ago. Hopefully, the new clutch and rear end will be installed in a few weeks. I'll be in Valdosta, GA at the SCCA national this weekend, have a rallycross next weekend, and a 2 day autocross the weekend after that, then maybe I can get to it.

175k mi,

Did a short nose crank replacement, and rebuild about 10k ago(though it didnt NEED the rebuild yet, we did it while we were in there). Only a few hundred boosted @5-6PSI.
