Subject: turbo engine vs non turbo

What kind of stress does a turbo place on the engine that a non turbo doesn't, and how does saab engineer for this? The turbo runs at higher temps and pressure than the non turbo, but how does saab acount for this? For instance, if I'm buying a Saab w/ an after market turbo chip, what kind of modifications will have been done to the car and what places in the engine do I need to look for for wear, tear, and stress? thanks, nate
