Question PI Head Swap Reliability...

Well I have finally got myself a set of PI heads for my stang, and I must say that I am really excited about it. I will get them ported and polished before they go on the car. My question is quite simple; will I be able to get 100,000 miles out of a PI head swapped 98GT? Will the increase in compression cause any long term effects? I really need this car to last me a long time. I have 40,000 miles on the clock now, so will I be able to see 150,000 miles with the PI head swap? Thanks...

As long as the heads are installed correctly--

The only problem you should see is white smoke coming from the wheel wells.

Yeah, I think you've chosen, like many of us, the least likely way to cause harm to your engine, while significantly boosting HP. Like was said above, with a good install, and with all the "normal" maintenance, oil changes, etc., you should be good to go. I've had mine in for about 6mos now, and no problems whatsoever.
