It depends how the engine is treated, what types of surfaces it's run on, and how soon (basically) it wears out.
Also, how much has been invested in the engine itself, really.
Some will put in a new motor half way thru a season. Others have been known to run the same engine for 2 years....not that I'd recommend that, but still...

I've got one customer (a Cramac oil user, btw) who's put over 50 races on a motor and it still runs strong, has little leakdown and good oil pressure and compression.

It depends on so many things, really...

I ran 2 seasons when my engine was new and had it rebuilt for last year and ranit again a second season this year.I run mobil one synthetic and change it every 3-4 races depending on how hot it gets in warmer weather.Its always ran strong and has given me 13 wins over the past 4 years in the streetstock division at Fonda NY.As far as I am concerned if you take care of your engine it will take care of you.

hey back woods. You got 1 more win left in that engine??? Great run last week!!!

djsamson, another NY'er here.. Fonda Speedway

freshen your engine, when it needs it. unless you got deep pockets, than you probably got a spare to rotate in when needed..

At what percent leakdown do most freshen a motor?
