So I was talking to a former subie salesmen who had a RS. He was talking about the fact that he never spotted a RS with with the stock unrebuilt motor over 150k. I think that might be stretching it a tad, But seeing as how I have 113k on mine and just had the heads rebuilt I am wondering.

He was talking about rod bearings I am guessing. I would just like to see 200k out of my motor if I can, About another 3 or 4 years of use. Just did rebuilt heads with every timing part replaced.

I wasnt aware bearings in 251s were common to go out.. atleast I havent seen a thread or heard people talking about them.
maybe he was thinking the 205?

Me, 156K and change. I've got a slight HG leak, the slow external one. But I'm just going to run it as-is since I want to swap anyway.
