    Mine's a daily driver. It gets driven every other day since I work 24 hour shifts and my station is only about 7 minutes from my house so the miles stay off of it for the most part.

    Get a good tune, wait until the engine is in operating temp. before getting into boost, and do the regular maintenance on it and you'll have years of fun.....

    I can't really make an informed guess on the cams because I don't have any. I can say that how long the motor last really depends on the driver. If you get into boost or high rpms N/A at every green light your motor will take a beating regardless.

    I've had my blower for 3.5 years and have had zero problems getting into occasional boost. I don't dog the crap out of it like some people do though.

    What's your driving style? Lead foot or granny, lol? :shrug:

    Mines daily driven! ...except on days when its below 40 out...or raining....or when I want better gas mileage... On those days I drive my sisters Honda (she graduates college in the fall though, so I'll have to buy a daily driver...hmm the choices the choices!).

    Mine is daily driven, until next week.

    IMO, if you just do an S-trim w/ a good tune, you can use your car as a DD for as long as you need. I'm to the point that I want to start doing some serious mods, and my car will need to be off the road for several days at a time. So I picked up a beater.
