Default How many miles on your turbo miata?

Whats up guys, im about to purchase a 00 miata with 115k miles, plan on turboing it, was wondering how reliable yalls miatas have been throughout the miles of your cars life....is 115k low enough to boost one up to around 200whp safely if everything is mechanically good?

I turbo'd my 99' at 145K. Like 148k now and it's kickin'. Just do a compression test. If it's all fine, the motor is fine. Mileage doesn't mean much.

Car: 149,000 miles
Engine: ~ 85,000 miles
Engine Turbo Miles: ~ 23,000 miles

Most of my problems are megasquirt and tuning related, the car itself if a tank.
