Not at all, just realize more mods typically leads to less reliability. Also leads to a horrible mod bug. I ultimately got my DD so I don't have to wrap up my projects each night.

Figure once you start making changes to internals, blocks, and etc, reliability would drop much more, eh?

Built blocks will typically not last as long as a factory built rotated assembly, but can obviously withstand a lot more power. This does give some uncertainty, however there are plenty of people pushing north of 500whp using their ride as a daily, but they also may have a secondary car in case. User is a very prominent poster who dailies his built STI, btw I want your GT4!

Honestly treat it right and give it the maintenance it needs, you can have a nice higher HP STI to reliably daily drive.
