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.
