His other post(s) are also quite wordy:

All things come to those who wait.

So, a close friend told me turbo engines only last about 180,000K. Seriously?
I've peaked out on Stage 2, but aside from a couple of 1/4 mile runs and tuning on hill climbs, the old ECOBOX has had a pretty darn easy life.
But at that 180 point the AVCS filters started getting sketchy, so I figured when I pull the filters I'll refresh the rings.

On tear down, upper main rod bearings were done, thrust bearing done, bores glazed. Apparently I was producing somewhat more power than I had calculated?

Now finishing the build for a Dominator turbo, 272 cams, MW50.

My mechanic told me flat out, "You will use heavier oil from now on. 10W40 for daily use and you will use heavier oil for track days"
That's heavy Man! Far out!

I don't think anyone here was waiting...

Still, welcome to the club.  Cool build.

Depends on the owner.

Not really. Almost everyone runs 40 weight in the EJ's. Though not 10w, typically 5w or 0w.

Yup, mines almost at 300,000 lol
Basics are the foundation for everything, without them would lead to nowhere. There is also a need for balance.....everything connected must be equaled out or complemented to each other in order to achieve stability; too much or too little of something will lead to chaos.
