Ben's (Plural of Ben??) I'm one of the guys running big HP's, Been doing 
it in my Daily Driver for the last year and have covered 34,000 Miles in 
that time with absolutly no engine troubles.  Consumed more gas than a 
un-modified 5KCSTQ, but other than that and the MAJOR Smiles NO Trouble.  
I see no reason not to use this car as a daily driver.  Now onto more 
HP's......  Right Scott?!?!!?!
