A well designed and built engine should be good for this and more. The problem
is, it's not been proven capable of doing so. Asked a former airshow pilot
about this once. He routinely saw the mid 3000s while flying his routine. His
feeling was that he never knew when or if the engine would quit, but he always
expected it to do so. He wouldn't fly distances, trailered his Pitts to
Sun-N-Fun. The EZ types are designed for traveling. Pilots EXPECT the engine
to keep running. I'm sympathetic with this opinion.
