The thing is, a V8 Altima engine can run between 3,000 to 5,000km without major rebuild (except for valve gear updates), with few moving parts needing regular replacement. Kelly Racing back in the Holden days never usually laid a spanner on the engines, unless they were scheduled for maintenance, between rounds. Cheap performance, relatively.

A V6 biturbo engine is more highly stressed as a racing engine. Far more susceptible to temperature, inambient & oil and water and air. With vulnerability in inducting dirt and sand in the intakes. In having those 2 snails on there that are prone to falling out of balance, perhaps more especially in a variable boost environment we might see in the future. Data from the engines will probably need to be pored over, see where overboosting happened, temperature, and any other thing that could impact reliability

If you are 888 and throwing a fresh engine in for almost every event, the budget impost wont be a whole lot. If you are running the long life method like most other teams, the goalposts will shift.... in the hip pocket..
