    You need to check and make sure you don't have excessive blowby past your piston rings first.

    as long as the compression reading is good (bout 180 or if not that high not farther then about 3 psi between each cylinder) then boost it. I know someone that boosted there motor at 200,000.

    I have 100K on my turbo matrix, 190K on the turbo Accord. My buddies Turbo colt got damn near 300K on the 1.6T motor.

    I boosted one of my LS's at 140k. But that motor had really good compression, it was less then 2 psi difference in each cylinder.

    The LS I rebuilt and put my PnP'd head and IM on had 185 across, never got to see it run though, my sister seemed like she needed it more then me since she took it.
