My new motor has been in since January. It has about 13,000 or so miles. The parts are J&E lightweight pistons, ATR aftermarket connecting rods, new crank, billet main caps, roller cam, roller rockers. If I drive this thing daily to work putting 44 miles or so am I going too loose the raceability of this engine? That is my question. Also, I plan on having a different form of transportation in a year, should I be worried about this car being a true "daily driver"?

I have driven my GN everyday (year round yet) for about 5 years and no major problems with it, just the occasional bad sensor, coil pack, wear and tear type parts, nothing major...keep it tuned, keep fluids fresh and you should have no problems! I have around 70K miles on my ORIGINAL motor yet and still runs like a champ. These cars are amazing in both the daily driver world and the race world
