120k lucky charm

Nice meeting you in St. Charles. My car finally spung an oil leak after we got home from the 4200 mile trip. About a quarter sized leak. My indie thought it may be the RMS so we took engine and Tiptronic tranny out for a better look. Indeed the culprit. No complaints since the car has 120k on it. Took your advise and did the LNE IMS retrofit while there as well as oil separator, some water hoses, o rings, torque converter seal and anything else that might give us a hastle later on while her heart and soul are exposed. The tranny was replaced at 80k so we did the service while it was at the doctor. Since all this has been done now, what other weak points do you know of inside the engine that might cause it to implode? Hoping to get another 100k miles more out of this one. We put about 20k miles/year on the P-Car and are planning on driving it to BC for Escape.
