Jim - gas her up and start driving! Seriously, have you had any major systems fail in that 194,000 miles?

Been pretty much trouble free. I had to replace the alternator at 189,872, but I figure that was pretty good, water pump at 150,000. Both were easy to do jobs.

While it was under warranty I somehow blew a head gasket - had just started plumbing the nitrous but hadn't run it yet, so the service manager said he could tell it wasn't complete, just a line run to the engine compartment but hadn't tapped anything yet (hadn't even filled the bottle yet at that point) so warranty covered it, and no problems since.

I ran nitrous on it for 2 race seasons, then pulled it at 90,000 miles and put the supercharger on.

Regular maintenance is all.

Congrats on making it that far with no major problems. Makes me feel like I have a lot of years left in my motor since I just hit 38k.
