MY car had 100k+ miles on it and ran 150hp shot for 2 years then moved to a Supercharger with 14psi and now going Twin Turbo and the motor has 148k miles on the short block. Was making 535rwhp with 14psi and hope for the same with the Turbos.

I still don't have any real ring wear either. All my pistons are within 5psi and no problem with a leak-down test either. My problem will be when I split the block so I don't hold it at WOT for very long, only 11 seconds at a time.
