Eh...well I don't count, but my Scout has about 160K miles on it.  My Hondamatic has almost 21K miles on it (which is like having over 100K miles on a car).

for now, if someone offers me what I am selling it for, then it is gone, but otherwise, it is sticking around.  I have a guy looking at it on Tuesday.

First engine.
I blew the stock K03 around 80K, the first K04 around 130, and I'm on my second K04 now.
I know guys that have more miles and track days than I do, and their 1.8Ts compression is better than some new engines.  Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.
I don't think my car has ever run better than it does right now.  Just got the latest American version of MTM stage three, and its dreamy.  I originally was running the Italian program (they have low octane gas there, too) with a stock downpipe.  I'm guessing the stock DP on the K04 with the funky programming contributed to my blown K04.
I used to boost 21 psi on 91 octane.  Now I'm only boosting 17 psi.  I'm guessing that's because the air/fuel is a little leaner.  I'll verify that theory on Wednesday at MAC Autosport.  The car feels every bit as fast now as it did with the Italian/21 psi program.
