What should I do to maintain my evo8?

Ok so Iv'e had my Evo for 2 years and iv'e had some pricey issues with it. The number one issue was my center differential which i just got fixed for 5,000 at the dealership. I don't wanna have a repeat on that same issue for obvious reasons. My question is what should i do so that my evo runs good as new? My Evo has 69,000 miles and i'm afraid it's on the verge of breaking little by little. Ive never seen these cars with a lot of miles on them. How should I service the turbo? How can i make my car last as long as possible? Im considering trading it in cause i don't wanna have to fix it agian. Any help would really help. Thankyou very much.

Seriously?

If something is going to break, then its going to break. Its not that the cars are built faulty, its mostly because of how people drive them or maintain them. But you say that youve had the car for 2 years, and youre JUST NOW asking how to take care of it?

CHANGE YOUR FLUIDS
CHECK YOUR BELTS
60K MILE SERVICE DONE YET?

oil changes, fluid swaps, T-belt services, good plugs and knowing how to drive your car will keep it running for a long time. I actually just got rid of my evo with 183k on it and it bought by a shop local in the area for a cheap track car. the car is still on OEM head, Block, t-case, trans, turbo, axles, and diffs. I in no way drove my evo easy, just did the basics.
