Welcome to the forum. I've moved your post into the Turbo part of the forum for a better response. Personally, I don't think there's anything to check but we'll let the Turbo guys have a say.

I know people with well over 100k on them. They do wear out, but there isn't any particular mileage to check. You'll know by noise or if it is leaking oilo or coolant.

Just make sure you use synth oil and you could literally go a couple hundred K miles on one with no problem
