My, you are courageous!

You dared to use 'never use' and 'K&N' in the same sentence....

(I agree, but something tells me neither of us will have the last word on this matter...)

: What other things should I be on the lookout for maintenance wise, to ensure a couple hundred thousand more miles?

: The keys to longevity in any car is basically the same list:

: 1) 3,000-mile oil changes (dino juice) or 7,500 with synthetic (but change the filter at 3,750 miles).

: 2) Be gentle first thing in the morning... don't beat on the car when it's dead-cold, give it 5-10 minutes of gentle driving to warm up.

: 3) Watch the air filter (and never use a K&N).

: There are lots of little repair/maintenance tips and tricks you can pick up from watching this board or asking questions when you've got a problem.

: Good luck with your new toy, hope you have many more miles of fun with it!
