True, however we have owned this engine since brand new, its had synthetic in it since literally the very first oil change and the oil changed every 5k. When I pulled the engine apart it was cleaner inside than any of my previous engines including the 70k 6.0 I bought from the wrecking yard. My opinion is that the GENIV engines are superior in reliability and durability than the GENIII engines.

We will see what happens though Safe tune, low RPM, frequent oil changes and we see how long the old girl stays together. If it dies, Ill build a 6.2 for it and make stupid power

Maintenance is done on the car and its loaded up for another weekend of car stuff. Will be at Sanderson Airfield in Shelton Saturday and AVANTS members day in the Seattle area on Sunday.

Curious to see if my modified gas cap keeps fuel in the tank this weekend.
