Just hit 100k

Original rod bearings, TBA's and clutch!

Only thing that has failed has been the low pressure fuel sensor. All fluids changed very regularly, new battery and pads all round recently. Oil sent off for Blackstone analysis.

Changed thermostat, water pump, idler and belts at 100k as preventative maintenance.

I have been changing oil every 7k or less and just got my first above-average lead reading but I think it might have been gas from a trackside Sunoco pump I used, otherwise wear metals have all been low on this engine. Might be doing rod bearings soon for peace of mind if the next analysis doesn't look better.

Rod bearings changed at 102,400 miles due to that spike in lead readings on the blackstone report not dropping on the next one after 4500 miles on the oil. They didn't look terrible (for S65 bearings) but didn't look great either. It was time. Still on the original other big known "wear" items (Throttle actuators, clutch). Has just under 104,000 on it now.
