B230FT Longevity 900

OK, looking to get back into a Volvo redblock, will need to be turbo this time. I know all about the skinny rods and other stuff. But as we all know these cars ain't getting any younger. I've got a few locally with 200 to 220 Kmiles on it with the fat rods. For a non-turbo not a problem, for the turbo, i'm guessing the head gasket will go before that point. That's easy enough to deal with, but how about the bottom end on these things, assuming good maintenance do they just keep on going or is 200 - 250 Kmiles a realistic limit.

I know, lots of ifs here, best to find the best maintained car, but not that many left. Comments appreciated.
