Maybe you should re-read my post..... That is basically exactly what I said..... I stated that the engine longevity will not be that of an engine at OEM spec.

I am basing the longevity of an SC'ed car in the hundreds of thousands of miles based upon the robust construction of the block/bedplate assembly, the forged crankshaft, the bearing area of the crank and rod bearings, the excellent oiling system, robust valvetrain, etc. You can tell a lot of how strong an engine is just by the looking at the parts!
