The modular engines are somewhat high mileage engines, they can take alot of abuse because there built for it esp the 03-04's. I would say the car would be good for another 50 to 100 thousand miles altho personaly I would put it through a rebuild or atleast be easyer on it. The internals, heads, and blower (unless running more then stock boost or nitrous) are deff good for that long but the gaskets, transmission, maybe piston rings and other things keep an eye on.

How much does he want for it? Does the guy beat on it?[/quote]

dude cmon. lol
Just cuz its driven hard doesnt mean it wasnt taken car of still in great shape. You can drive a car hard smartly, or you can drive like a idiot and kill the thing.

Check to see if theres any leaks from any plastic gaskets and have a good mechanic check it out, but it shouldnt be a problem

I tried to find this post, but some dude claimed to have 204,000 on his 03' and had recently laid down 400+ hp. Can't remember the numbers.... BUT!!! He was swearing by Royal purple. That many oil changes could pay for a nice build... lol. :yes
