It'll be fine. Just do a compression and leakdown test and go for it. I supercharged my E36 M3 when it had 96k miles on it and had no issues at all.

S/C'd mine (328ci) at 134,000. No problems so far. Like docwyte said have a compression check performed before you purchase, those results should tell you whether you need to do a leak down as well.

Not unless you rebuild...
