Evo X - Built motor Reliability?

Hey everyone,

So I have been thinking of selling my evo 8 and possibly getting a newer Evo X. I am looking a Built motor Evo X, but not sure whether or not it would be reliable. I need the car to be reliable, as its my daily driver and drive 20k miles a year, so don't wanna have to rebuild the engine after 25k miles, preferably to last 100k+ on 400-500whp. Is this possible and does anyone DD a built motor X?

Was the block sleeved? A built motor is as reliable as the build quality. A good one will go 40k-100k+ miles depending on how its driven and what power level it's at.

100% about who built it, what components where used, the tune and how it's used.

My ex DD EVO X well maintained, stock motor is almost 400whp since 60K miles and about to hit 200K soon, she never let me down and shes super reliable!!

If your happy with 400whp, stock is fine no need to spend.

If you want over??
im guessing 450whp stock is fine too and reliable???
Dont forget this car is factory detuned!
