Informal survey: how common is Nikasil problem? (archive)

Could we try an informal survey. I really don't know how prevalent the nikasil problem really is. Do all cars eventually fail or are they OK if they reach some mileage without problem.

Please leave whatever info you like, but it seems to me the following would be helpful:

Where located
Condition (idle, leakdown results if know, etc)
Block ever replaced?

I'll post my own results as a reply to get things started.
