A lot of members are concerned about how long their motors will last on their daily drivers if they put on a supercharger. This questionaire is for those with stock internals ('03/04 Cobras excluded... you know why). Let's tell them how long we've been driving on stock motor supercharged.

I'll go first. My car has 148,000 mile. The last 68,000 miles have been supercharged around 380 rwhp.

I only installed about 5-6 months ago but already put 5,000 miles on. It's my daily driver and then I made a cross-country drive when I moved! After the first 2 weeks of debugging ... Zero problems.

30k miles supercharged, 80k total. Also taken several long trips with it since supercharged with no problems. Been down the track hard alot, but street driving rarely get into the boost so those miles are easy on it.

My car has 97k miles, over 70k supercharged. I floor it every time I drive it, and it gets driven almost daily.

This was unexpected. The single biggest catagory of supercharged fragile stock cast rods at this time is 50,000 miles or more.

We really need more people to respond. Obviously, from this data, a supercharger doesn't hurt your motor if you stay reasonable.

~16k no issues from the motor. The only issue I have is the a slight leak in the head unit so it doesn't get driven as much now.
