Who would argue against your basic statement that leaving it stock would ensure longevity over heavily modified?

Based on what we currently know, I stated a FI failure is unlikely as long as you are adhering to the specifics I listed, it wasn't about longevity, how long are we talking here? ESS has had kits with 50 to near 100K miles on the stock motor and sold 350 supechargers worldwide with no documented failures, does that kind of info register with you, or were you not aware of it?
