    Hey all,

    My 94 ls teg turned 150,000 miles today. I am getting some money soon for graduation and am considering some power mods beyond the normal bolt-ons. I want more power but was wondering if I would be a fool to boost a car with that many miles on it. I need the car to last me at least 2 years more of daily driving.

    it's not miles . . . it's maintenance . . . if you took proper care of your motor then it shouldn't have any problem taking boost. There are people boosting motors that have 220,000+ miles on them, but it's just the maintaining that helps everything go great!

    Do a leakdown test to be sure.

    97-100% Very good.
    92-96% Serviceable.
    89-91% Acceptable, but should be fixed.
    <88% Ya dun broke it.
