How high is too high?

I'm wondering how high km/ miles is too high to do performance engine work. I'm asking this because as my dad pointed out that my newest stang is higher mileage than the other one so I can't bag drive it as hard. Which concerned me if it's safe or possible do add anything really to it if it can't be driven hard (not that I abuse it much) but enough to pop a sensor light from time to time.

That's fine man, its an old car. all depends how it was maintained. if it has any new parts or if it was neglected...
Like I am sure my car or many others on here if they hit that many kms one day will still drive just as good or better then today.. because we take care of our cars.

That's what I thought too but it feels better having been sure first. And I do agree

To give you another point of view, there are new cars that are coming off manufacturer lines already with engines issues. If you have maintained it well then you are fine.

That is around 158k miles. My car has 145k on it and I don't feel afraid at all to cam it and put nitrous or a supercharger on it.

168,800 miles (271,600 km) here and she runs fine. I actually just drove her 7 hours to he beach with no problems! Have had to replace my filler neck grommet and my headers in the past, but I'm not afraid to take this car places.
