    Stock or a safe tune if you want any long term mileage out of it =)

    Detonation is a pretty common killer for our engines.

    Would cobb stage 1 be considered in your "safe" category?

    Opinions vary. I've never dealt with a Cobb map to be honest. You'd have to do some datalogging to check. Personally, I put Cobb on par with the stock tune in terms of being 'safe'. Both are off the shelf tunes - conservative - but still 'off the shelf'. Some members have posted seeing a decent amount of detonation on Cobb OTS maps - once again, no first hand experience there.

    I wouldn't worry in your shoes though. Cobb is pretty well looked upon =).

    Bump for old times sake, and an update. Due to personal reasons, the bugeye was parked for some time. It is now nearing 275,000 miles. Unfortunately, it has also acquired a burnt valve since I originally posted this thread. I still drive her occasionally, but I am living much closer to my work now, so most of my time is spent on my CBR :-/

    Edit: The motor is still original, nothing except belts have been replaced. I have had to replace the transmission and radiator though.

    How long did the stock transmission last? I'm only at 125,000 on my Bugeye so I figure I still have some time. Just curious.
    Thanks.

    You never changed your alternator?
    I think I'll have to have one of you explain this further? So once you pass 200,000 your odometer doesn't keep counting up or what?

    Look at the picture again, and take note of the Trip Odometer....

    It was probably 225,000 or so if I recall correctly. The thing about transmissions is that damage is cumulative. I hammered on this car quite a bit, and nothing ever broke. It was during a regular commute that I lost a gear. I believe it was first or second, I can't remember exactly.
