Would a tuned/chipped Stinger still be reliable beyond 100k miles?

Should we expect a tuned/chipped Kia Stinger to survive 100k miles or more as a daily driver without any major repairs if maintained properly?

if the tune was properly done, then I don't see why it will not last past 100k miles

Thats relative to how aggressive the tune is or which map the car is mostly driven on etc, supporting mods, how much power your making, fuel being used etc, there is no straight answer because it depends on many things.

In short, mild tune most likely yes, aggressive tune probably not.

I'm pretty sure most current chips on the market are fairly safe and shouldn't have any significant impact on the lifespan of the motor.

This engine has forged rods, timing chains, oil and transmission coolers, and 9 quarts of lube. This thing is built for the long haul.

Where does blue wire go? I get it's the power but no clue which wire it connects to and can't find the doc? It's the Bluetooth connection
