Actually at 252 I would be more afraid of the trans going out then engine problems.

Mine has 235K, has had a chip in it for the entire time, and it's been run really hard. I'm not worried about the motor at all. everything else will probably break around it before the motor goes.

i don't have 200k or anything close. I'm at 82k with an edge evolution and i got 16.7 towing my boat with my 4wheeler in the back on a trip a couple of weeks ago. Thats not to bad considering i was getting 14.5 to 15 doing the exact same stuff.
