    I've never known a modded car to be "reliable".

    i would say running for 2+ years with a stock bottom end was extremely reliable. what would stage2 be like 2 1/2 times +or - the stock power level WHP?
    thats pretty reliable in my book, especially for a car that has seen its fair share of track use, and not just tooling around town like i use mine for...lol

    But this is a catastrophic failure. I can see a blown HG or bad rings but for a motor to window itself seems like more that "we'll its over 2+ years old" So is your stance that HPF cars need to be rebuilt every 2 yr or 25,000 miles ?

    nope Im saying youre asking alot of a stock block to hold up for years under those conditions.........My car hasnt needed to be rebuilt in over 40,000 HPF miles, granted about 1/2 of those are on a built block . My stance is 2 yrs on a stock block when you modify your car with 2 1/2 times the power that block left the showroom with it pretty darn reliable.

    remember its not like he was just kicking it around town, he was at the track, its strenuous on a motor.
