At 197150, just bought it needing a little TLC. New LCA's + ball joints, AC clutch, so far runs strong thus far. Need to do timing belt, water pump and shocks and struts. Love is so far.

My 03 SPI is now at 156k and going strong. Wonder if my adding 2oz Lucas Upper Cylinder Lube at each fill up is helping to prevent the inevitable valve seat drop?

I am by no means and expert, but I don't think there is an additive in the world that will stop that seat from eventually dropping. If you want to avoid it, swap the head.
