just rebuild the motor, its not hard and you can lower the compresion so the motor will be even safer to turbo : )

You can do a compression check and leakdown on your engine to determine what kind of condition the engine is in. Is your oil pressure good? If everything checks out you will probably be OK as long as you are easy on the boost. The engine will eventually need engine work though if you really want to get long term relaible power out of it.

As far a a rebuild it ususally consists of new over-size pistons (a great time to lower compression ratio for a boosted motor), new rings, new crankshaft and rod bearings, and new oil pump. Other parts that might (usually) need replaced due to wear include camshafts, valve springs, lifters, and valves. A new gasket set with seals is required as well as a new timing belt set.

The rebuild will also consist of expert machining services to bore, deck and align hone the block. Machining is also required to rebuild the heads. The proper ring and bearing clearances will have to be checked and adjusted. The connecting rods usually need reconditioning or better yet replaced with a stronger aftermarket unit for a boosted motor. Finally, the entire reciprocating assembly should be properly balanced.

Definitely a job for an experienced mechanic if you decide to do it yourself.

I will bring my car to a mechanic on an off day and get a compression check done and see how my engine checks out.

I would, why not. if you blow up anything then you need a rebuild anyway right. what are you going to do pound some barring, blow a piston, any of that dose a will happen if it`s a new eng. so go for it and if something brakes then at lest you didn`t spend alot of $ on a rebuild aready right. look at it as a dry run once you get it tuned right then rebuild it I`m just looking at it like this your not going to damage the turbo just the eng. if something brakes. that is unless your turbo dosn`t get oil. that wouldn`t be good.
