Yeah this is all chassis miles. As of today, I'm at 438,000 chassis miles, and I've added about 200,000 miles to the SR. The best thing I ever did was to rebuild it shortly after the swap. CP Pistons / Eagle Rods, metal head gasket blah blah blah, all the common stuff. I've just kept it super simple tho, and I'm not forcing a ton of HP out of the motor. On the last tune, it was set at 315 hp. It could go further, but honestly it gets scary enough in the mountains with this much hp. You could say I'm running a de-tuned setup for longevity right now.

Sr20 from ~1990 will go 500k miles at 400rwhp (~350ft*lbs of torque on 93 octane), just change the oil pump at ~200k and maybe scrub the cylinders and add new rings around 300k to bring back compression.
haven't got a doubt in my mind

I know someone who swapped their 240 back in 2001 or so, drove that car who knows how many miles, had to be 150k or so, it recently oil pump failure chewed the bearings up. I warned him that would happen. Those pumps don't last forever but everything else seems like it will.

now. whether or not this a feasible, recommendable, logical, sane idea is another story all together.
Just gotta keep an eye on things. I kinda feel like it's similar to your health... like, you'll usually see signs that you're getting sick or that you should do something before something breaks.

An accurate oil pressure gauge and water temp gauge seem really good to have. Besides that, if you drive a car frequently enough, you can hear or feel if something seems slightly odd. Then you go hunting for loose wires or this or that. At least, that's kind of how I've taken care of this car. I really want to reach the 500k mile mark. I heard there are a couple people out there who are close to it, but idk... who knows, maybe they meant kilometers hahah

If there's anything I've learned from having this car this long, it's that EVERYTHING is a wear item, not just brake pads, rotors, spark plugs, and that sort of thing. I've broken the most random things just from age and regular driving. I've snapped a rear knuckle and my chassis has torn in 3 places. I've also broken a subframe stud. But after replacing and welding what's been broken, maaaaayyyybe we can get another 400,000 miles of good times. Still the best car ever.
