maintenance is more important than mileage.my s13 has 265k miles onit and I havent had a problem with it in the year ive had it. the original owner was meticiulous about maintenance had recipts going back to 95. Ive only used oem filters after having a jiffylube filter collapse.spend the money on good parts and oil, i use rotella oil intended for diesel engines due to the high sulpher content, cleans the sludge out of the engine slowly. also lasts longer.

Mr 240 It always helps to double check your product
lmfao, at your initial post.

My 240sx timeline:

Buy 240.
Change coolant, ATF and P/S fluid, brake fluid.
Full synthetic oil change, correct weight (5w30)
Full synthetic rear end fluid.
Next oil change is synthetic again after 4k.
Front main starts leaking.
add 1 qt every 800 miles, added 4 total before fix.
Fixed front main seal then sythetic oil change.
Huge timing cover leak.
both axle seals start leaking.
replaced axle seals, topped off with synthetic gear oil and the seal by the driveshaft started leaking in like 1k
Engine spins bearing, 2k into last synthetic oil change.

so if ebay is selling stance, pbm, tomie, greddy, sparco , ect. all those part are ebay brand?. ebay is a wholesaler, they only sell parts. yes if you just try to buy the cheapest shit possible then yes the parts not gonna be very reliable. i do agree maintain your car before raggin on it, but ebay does not produce parts, half my part came from ebay none with a stamp that said "ebay". basically what im sayin is just cause it came from ebay doesnt mean its a poor quality part. quit blaming ebay for your cheap decisions.

tips of plugs melting or breaking off is do to heat, detenation, improper gap, i have ran the iridiums with no problems for years, hope that helps, if ur running high boost then stock a cooler plug may be necc, but even then i would still go with iridiums, better, cleaner burn
