Thumbs up 200k Miles

How much longer might my engine last?

I am planning to dump money into it,and already have dumped a good bit,still have more FSWerks parts coming in.

Anyway how much would it cost at a ford dealership to put a new Zetech in it after my current one throws a rod?

Will my engine even break 250k is what is on my mind.

Replace the motor with one that has less miles or has been totally re-built. I wouldn't keep throwing performance parts onto a old motor. And a brand new one might run you a pretty penny.

Hope this helps and welcome to FF.

Wait, so $1500 for a new SVT engine and $875 for the install? Wow, I would drive from Cali for that if I needed a new engine!
