Chevy power

Counterpoint about the Chevy 350s... they don't die so young either.

Several listers have claimed that Chevys don't see 200K miles without lots
of $$$.  My family has had several, and not one needed a rebuild.  Two hit
the 300K range.  

The Chevy 350 is a well-designed solid engine that lasts practically
forever.  The Audi engines also last practically forever.  They get to that
same point through two different routes (the Audi engine works harder, but
is perhaps more extensively engineered also), but they both get there.

I wouldn't want a Chevy 350 in an Audi; they are heavy engines, and would
upset the balance.  But they are good solid long-lasting engines.
