If you buy a 2.5 from a reputable builder you should expect to have that thing run for the next 20 years.

You only drive on Sundays and at the track right? How many track days do you do a year? 6-7?

Suppose you do 10 days at LImerock each year. You are a good driver who runs 1:06 all day. Each session is 20 minutes @ 4 sessions per trip.

Thats 18 laps per sesion x 4= 73 laps per day x 1.56 miles = 113 miles per day x 10 days= 1,134 miles per year at the track.

Shall I continue or are you using some dog shit oil in that engine?

Eric 2.5 w/ 5k and drive it every day!
