Miles on built LB7

READ BEFORE VOTING

This question is only for guys with aftermarket rods or pistons running upgraded induction systems and bigass tunes.

I tried this once before and didn't explain well enough...that or people get really excited to vote on a poll...

How many miles do you have on your built engine?

I ask this because I plan to upgrade the internals of my motor after I roll 250k or something substantial fails before then. I am curious to see how longevity is impacted when you run big power constantly.

After voting, please discuss the use of your truck. Ex: work truck, daily driver, race only, etc...

You don't need a built engine to get 500+HP. Just a tune, lift pump and trans.

I mean above 500, simply to include everyone up there and not just a certain power range. Edited to satisfy...
