Update, I have 185,000 on my Ram, trouble free and 260,000 miles on the hemi in my RT Magnum wagon. Thought I was doing good, till I met an owner of a 1956 Chrysler Imperial with over 300,000 miles on the original 354 hemi ! I asked the secret. Owner said it was always serviced by the original Chrysler dealer and they used 30W oil.

236 thousand here. Motor has never been opened. Lots of maintenance and purrs like a kitten. Uses no oil between 3000 mile oil changes. It's spent most of it's life on the highway which probably helped.

I've got 220k on a 2003 Hemi with original engine and trans. And I beat on it HARD every day. I always use synthetic oil and change it at 3,000 miles. It's got JBA headers that are coated, a K+N CAI (great customer service from them, on my 2nd filter, their warranty is 100% legit.) and a JET stage 2 chip. It also has 35s and I haven't changed the stock 3.55 gears so the engine has a load to pull with that. But it doesn't even phase it, last weekend I was doing yardwork and pulled a bush out of the ground IDLING. I Love this truck!!!
