turbo will provide huge stress for an engine that was probably gently driven through its life until now. I would invest time and money into something that makes the original m10 shine without much abuse - like the internals before going turbo.
Yes I do think that... if it's been taken care of why wouldn't it be?

If the motor currently has running problems N/A then obviously it wouldn't be a good idea to rebuild or swap it.

But seeing as I've personally seen and turbo'd enough old engines with high KM and they run just fine and last I don't see where the problem is.

If the OP is only wanting a new pounds of boost, why bother with internals... There is no need to invest that kind of money into a motor when the stock parts will work just fine.
