Hi Bud and welcome :D You're quick off the mark, I only activated you a few minutes ago :lol:

Yes, there have been several high mileage threads in the past. Most of us have or have had one with starship mileages on them. I have a V6 knocking on for 175K and that by many diesel owner's standards is pretty low.

The generally accepted wisdom is that high mileage is not a problem with regular maintenance.
