overbuild it a little and never have to worry. Isn't it like that when you rebuild a rotary too? Don't you have to pick the right apex seals, porting, rotors, maching work etc?
I hear about a lot of guys going through like 6 or more motors. What's with that? I'm very safe with my rebuilds on piston engines and I know that every one I rebuild will probably last past 100,000 miles and never need to be touched again.
You can over build the car without a problem. That is what i did. I guess the shop knew that I would want to make 500 hp eventually. You will have to match the ports to the turbo to get the best out of it. You will have to decide on if you want to street port or bridge port.
The tune is what most people dont do right and try to get the most out of a motor. Detonation kills our motors. I dont think you will ever get 100,000 miles out of a high hp motor, but that is just me. I know that howard colman has done a lot of research and knows how to build a motor.
