Default 2006 GT turbo

i was thinking of adding a turbocharger to my car. currently have a 2006 GT with around 55,000 miles. its daily driven and i wanted to know if you guys think my engine would die fast from a turbo. i drive it hard at times when i like to have fun and probably wont use it at a track.

A few things to know when your running FI. When u do drive hard do not use your overdrive gear. When you are on the highway going 50 and someone wants to race do not do a kick down (auto). Keep traction control off when driving hard as well. If its on and you forget to take it off that will mess with your timing and kaboom. Basically just using some sense will help you. Miles don't mean ****. Common sense goes along way. As far as running a Turbo you should be fine just someone to properly tune your car. That's the biggest thing

If you have a GOOD tune, plenty of fuel, and keep the boost at about 10psi, you should be fine (10psi on a turbo should get you to around 500RWHP+, depending on other mods).
