I got my stock 02 rex last week with 7,000 miles on it, and I love it. My only concerns are how long it will last me. I really need this car to get me through the next 6 years of college and the first few years of my first job. I drive aprox. 1,500 a week to school and back and around town. My plans for future mods are as follows: TXS Stealthback & Godspeed Uppipe in late November - early December. Next is a TXS UTEC, probably in late February - early March. After that it's a little sketchy.. maybe a Prodrive muffler in the future, polished throtle body, engine balancing in the distant future, I doubt I'll upgrade the turbo unless the stocker fails or my money situation allows me to purchase one easily.
What I want to know is how long can I expect to go with these mods and moderately spirited driving before something major fails, ie. turbo, motor, tranny.. I know there are a lot of contributing factors present in determining how long a part will last, but what is the norm??
