OBVIOUSLY, when you modify a vehical parts wear faster! Vehicals are built to handle what they come from the factory with. keeping a vehical stock will last you alot longer than modifying! also with a bigger motor thay arnt going to put smaller parts on it! they are going to put parts on it that are able to with stand the weight and power. a diesel will outlive a gaser in all ways!!
