They say you need to run your car hard every once in a while. Helps free up any carbon build up. Not saying do it every day... But you are allowed to enjoy your car.

well like i said, it makes me nervous to hear the engine whine like that. trust me, i'm not a sissy driver, i get yelled at constantly my the gf for how i drive. but i'm just trying to make this car last. i'll see what i can do later today.
is that maybe why my 0-60 is 15 seconds..? i mean i usually shift at 3-3500k on a normal day. maybe pushing it a little harder will help my time?

like i said, it's just because i lost 2 cars due to engine failure. obviously i'm not great in the "engine department" so i don't really have a lot of experince with it all.
call me a "grandpa", but keep in mind i'm a lot younger than most of you, so i have little experience....

Just take care of your engine, keep up the the oil changes, cleaning you air filter, etc. You'll be fine. I drive my car hard as hell and it has lasted me 9 years without any problems
