200+ on mine. I heard they were engineered to go 700-1000 hours before a top-end look-see.

Now granted that has alot to do with the life they lead. I believe mine will go a long ways.

I also heard 700-1000 hrs. of course alot depends on how you treat your equipment....... I put 600 hrs. on a 1990 base 454 330hp.....no problems (except manifolds/risers). The 496 is a MUCH better engine. Eric
