1. 145K mile original engine failed due to a lifter failure

3. Professionally rebuilt engine (with all new lifters and lifter cradle) failed due to spun bearing (ultimate reason for failure is inconclusive)

Right now, I am racing a donor engine with 90K miles from a Boxster that was totaled for front end damage.

So yeah, 3 months of no major failures feels pretty damn good and I'd like to keep the mojo going!
