We have quite a few members running a decent amount of boost quite reliably. Highest mileage aftermarket turbo car I know of was near 200k before it was sold and presumably racking up more miles in the care of a new owner. With good maintenance and maybe a little good luck, these engines can take quite the beating.

The engine (sourced from Mitsubishi) also comes with a factory turbo in other markets.
