My car has 146,000 mi.

I'm installing a low mileage motor and have to swap over the turbo.

Is there a point where the turbo just gets plain worn out?

Is there a good aftermarket turbo for a decent price?

Thanks!

Like anything, there is no set point. At 146k and a motor swap you might as well while the motor is out as it's easier to get to. The turbos are cheap enough. Aftermarket? Only if you have someone custom tune for it. And then you might as well not choke it with the OEM downpipe. Heck drop a bigger IC in now since it would be running more boost. Injectors? Sure why not. See where I'm headed?
