I beat the crap out of my 08 LX with the R18 and I’m starting to worry I’m being way to hard on it. I.E. doing multiple 1-2 shift redlines a day and just driving it overall pretty hard. Just want to know how to keep it going for as long as possible and what to replace overtime to keep the engine strong. Can’t resist hearing the cold air intake absolutely roar at 6000.

its a car and your stock bud. LOL the usual parts on any car. Just make sure you keep that oil and coolant fresh. According to what you said you dont have any real mods so your fine.

Keep the oil in good shape: good quality, change it often. Also make sure not to floor and/or redline unless the oil is up to temp (usually heats a few minutes after the coolant is up to temp).

So in other words, you don't keep up on any maintenance. Catch up on that and you'll be fine.
Of course I keep up on maintenance lol I may seem dumb asking a question like this but I’m smart enough to change my oil😂
