Good grief, man. Read what I have written. I've been polite, honest, and provided you with good information. I think the reason why you keep "collecting haters wherever you go" has a lot to do with your attitude. When everyone else seems wrong, it's time to look in the mirror.

But anyway, from earlier in the thread you were wondering why your mostly stock motor might not last many hundreds of thousands of miles. What stands out to me is much talk about all the parts you are sourcing, but not much mention to the people/process of putting it all together. A good builder makes all the difference, that is what I would be focusing on.

There are many instances of stock motors going 1 or 2 hundred thousand miles. There are many instances of built motors lasting a couple thousand or fewer miles. Some don't make it off of the dyno. Obviously you found a builder you are happy with, and I can vouch for Surgeline as a top notch tuner, so you have that in your favor.
OP - This is a good point. My car lasted 225k miles before the ringland finally cracked. My built engine I recently put together -- I am hoping to get 50-100k miles out of. It's a daily driver with occasional spirited driving. Over $9k invested.

Good luck on your build.
