Some questions about the turbo

Hey everyone so im pretty new to my riot and had a blast in the dunes with the proper tires. I am 22 and have a lot to learn about engines and what not, but am really curious as to how a turbo would effect the longevity of the motor , tranny, and all the related components? Also as to how it effects your maintenance schedule? Like I said I still have a lot to learn but I always do my own car work (how else you going to learn?) plus I'm 22 and paying for work ain't cheap. So far I have just had some minor issues with the riot nothing I can't handle, but it seems once I get the small kinks ironed out its a fairly easy car to maintain?
I would assume with boost and power comes more issues, but I am curious to what extent? Serious problems? Tranny issues with the extra power? And just general down time compared to a non turbo car?

If it is something that I need to work on as much as I play then no thanks for me, but of its nothing crazy then I will hopefully be turboing the riot in the upcoming couple months (wheelie time in a sideXside possibly??), thanks in advance for the help sorry for all the questions

Also if anyone could give me an estimated price/ a point in the right direction for all the parts would be greatly appreciated. In expecting about 5k by the end?
