How long will it last?

I've been thinking (which I do alot when I've got too much time on my hands) and was wondering how much shorter my engine will last if it is lightly modded with a moderate tune.

What do you guys and gals think? Should I be worried about a shorter engine life?

Should be fine as long as your tune doesnt make you run really lean or anything

U have a 5.0, you don't need a tune!!! I have a v6 and I think its more than enough power. But a moderate tune won't hurt your engine.

Haha, I gotcha. I'm just a power junkie, but still rational enough to not go completely wild and destroy my engine
