 Cam lobes, valves, bearings, etc? I wouldn't worry much with just a chip, but
 if i'm pushing 3.0 bar on a regular basis, am I asking for a meltdown by 200k
 miles? The tranny is only good for so much longer, too.

My worry would be down lower in the motor. Con rods, mains and crank are more
likely failure candidates.
