Modern engines last a LONG time.
I think the lubricants have lots to do with it as well as fuel injection to prevent fuel from washing lubrication away like cold engines with carburetors typically did.

The Viper Engines are a conventional design with some exotic twists and I've learned lots about them since buying my truck.

Glad you have been enjoying yours!

I have too!!

Too bad this site is SO quiet, it's been fun and educational.

This site was a lot more fun, entertaining and educational in the past. The newer generation is really missing a lot from the old guys.

Would love to forge mine in the future but who knows?

Best Ronnie.

Today's engines are built with better materials and machined with better tooling for tighter tolerances. Not meaning smaller gaps in parts but overall it's closer to perfect. Couple that with modern synthetic lubricants and it's amazing what kind of performance and longevity can be squeezed out of them.

Yep, the the 20K or so is a real stumbling block.

My 98 E250 van has 297k on it now, engine still purrs, oil pressure great and it doesnít leak. Proper maintenance also goes a long way.
