Your not intercooled from the factory but best way to improve engine health is intake 3" down pipe straight pipe and gauges, but if you want to keep it simple and add power too, a custom tuned chip, intercooler, e fuel, and

33's fit stock height, that's the tire size I run

They will all work, but looks like your grocery list hit $10,000, I attained 20 mpg average with about $500 in my whole engine

grammar policeman Kris is on patrol.

OP - reliability can be decreased as power goes up. keep it simple. let it breath intake exhaust, downpipe, gauges. then add a chip and see what you think. AND UPGRADED YOUR TRANNY. trans is the biggest issue i see.

unless you plan on big injectors then no , intake /exhuast and gauges then with a Tuner is the first steps , those will help with MPG , and as long as you dont abuse or keep beefing u the motor the E40D will treat you well , as said the more power you add the life span goes down ,
