Default Opionions wanted: Longevity of boosted STOCK D-block

What kind of longevity can I expect out of my stock engine (honda d16y7) with TUNED boost. (I'm initially thinking 8 psi.)
major components of setup will include:
t25
FMIC
450cc inj.
SAFC
AVCR

I guess some of you are running more boost, some lower. Assuming nothing fails in my HMT setup, how long before I need to rebuild my engine at 8 psi? (ballpark figures)
Oh, the engine is approx. 35K miles in great condition.
(I've only had my rex for 20 months and I'm already on my third motor. I don't wan't to swap anytime soon.)
Am I retarded?

That thing will hold together for a long time.

My a6 was boosted at 7psi for 2years w/ a rising rate and stock timing. I raped it daily and never had a problem. It ran perfect till the day I swapped it out.

I will be boosting my Z6 around 10 psi. The motor has 86k miles on it and I will probably do a tune up or something before I install the turbo. I'm not planning on rebuilding it and I expect it to last until I decide to do a swap or sell the car. I will be using hondata for fuel management.

---- longevity. In fact, ---- your T25.

Fit your car with a bigger T3, and feed it around 14 psi. Atlee's 91 Si/Z6 turbo no longer just pulls on stock LS1's - it does them dirty.

I have nice map for Uberdata, D16Z6, 450cc, and GM 2 bar MAP sensor if you want to drop the $50 on a Willem chip burner and step up in engine management and performance.

The 2 bar GM map sensor works with the Uberchip?
What about The Truboedit no 2 bar yet??

I'd be very interested in that bin file. I've got a Z6 in the sedan, a T3 from an auto T-Bird on the bench, the 450's are on their way, a MAP sensor can be had just down the road, and drool all over myself. If possible, send to my hotmail account: CrazyCooter04
