Lifespan on a 5.7 HEMI?

How much mileage do you all think the 5,7 will probably reach before it's toast?

Assume:
-premium synthetic oil, filter and air filter
-regular oil changes
-bone stock
-regular driving style

Just curious what everyone thinks.

On January 9th 2010,
Death tried to put his leering face,
Between my heart and it's desire,
I swore I would one day burst his iron gate,
Rise up,
And curse him on his throne of fire.

depends

should run as far as any competitive V8, which in my experience is over 200000 to as many as 300000 miles.

Regular driving style for whom? lol I would expect at least 150K - 200K under normal conditions. With that being stated, I expect I will be doing the bottom end before 100K.

but...

but you hardly fit his criteria!

If you gonna spray then you gonna pay! Expect a boatload of forged internals for you the second time around.

I'll still be screaming away at 6600, hitting my limiter with the tires a' spinnin'.
