As long as oil and coolant are provided to bearings 90,000 to 120,000.

My '95 9000CS didn't lose its turbo until 193K, but like Tom mentioned it is essential for the bearings to be lubricated or else it'll seize and cause a whole mess of issues. Just keep your fluids fresh and full and maybe have the turbo serviced every so often and you'll be great!
