True for all modern cars, I think.

I've done it, just not in a Genesis. Had an E36 that I checked a couple times for cracks/fatigue. First time was uneventful, or at least i didnt see the issues. Last time it had a bent rear subframe, cracked rear subframe pickup points, cracked semi trailing arm pockets, cracked weld beads around the rear subframe pickup threads, cracked driver side strut tower, cracked engine mount lands on the front subframe, and the forward stud on the passenger side of the chassis to attach the front subframe was excessively corroded. Only crash was a minor headlight smash driver side. Slight crumple to the fender, but no unitbody damage. Makes one wonder.

all depends on use/abuse.
planes are fine for 50 years but they get thorough overhauls every X hours.
Yeah, but to your point, there are parts of cars that folks would do well to inspect on an aircraft style schedule. Brake lines, shock towers, etc. Things that can surprise and quickly kill you. lol.

Hey, good thinking... Just noticed your post.

I've been contemplating where we should start keeping an eye out. Front shock towers and rears are obvious, the rear subframe pickup points too, though they're hard to inspect. Where else would you look for failure?

Riser only gains power at mid range -per dyno by 3point8performance.
Car will not run full power until oil temp is 150 deg., but I am sure car had to adjust fuel trims.
If you had custom tune done before, deffinatly need to redo it. Proper custom tuning can only be done with a/f reading expecialy with a riser. Make sure you have A/F gauge or use dyno for custom tuning, otherwise its waist of money.
