SPI Engine Blow Up Survey
 
I have a friend that had yes had a 2003 SE with the SPI engine in it. He had 106,000ish miles on it when it dropped the valves and blew the engine. That is kinda scary considering i have the same car and i'm getting close to that millage on mine. What i would like to ask is how many of you had the same thing happen and what was the millage on your car when it did. I would like to get a survey to collect as many millage incidents as possible so i can get an idea on how long i have before in need to do something to my car. So please if you guys can post here or PM me with the millage on your car when the valves dropped. Thanks.

Yup that's what I've heard, some go way early some will just go and go and go. The proof's in the reading lol

You are at the point of no return. Swap the head now, or else. [hatchet]

As far as this thread looks like I'm the old vet: 176k & the old girl ate it in the driveway of a Taco Bell a week ago. 30k of rental mileage, & 10 years in service.
