Currently I have around 104,000 miles on my car. Just trying to get opinions, would it be worth it to place a body kit on my car and turbo it? Just need an opnion because Im not sure what I want to do, money wise what I would get out of it and everything. Thanks.

Get a compression test. If your numbers turn out good, it would be worth it to modify.

Yeah it all just depends on your compression levels. I know a girl in my area who put a turbo on her LS at 100k on stock internals, and it finally blew at 200k after many many drag days and hard driving. That's also good maintenance though. I also have a friend who has been boosting up to 19psi on a stock Volvo 740 Turbo motor with over 200k for over 2 years.... that's another story though.
