Mike Busch is correct; TBO is just a number; it is the usage and the accumulation of engine parameters over time( i.e. oil consumption, compression etc.). The engine in my Glastar was a new O360A4M and I sold the aircraft at 400 hours. I keep in touch with the purchaser and it is still going strong (with possibly a little top end work) at 3500 hours. He uses it to troll daily for swordfish and tuna over the Pacific at low power settings. I put a new certificated IO540D4A5 from Van's my RV10. Due to some experiences I have had with shops over the years, you may want to run the engine until conditions indicate "end of life" and negotiate for a new or new limits overhaul from a reputable outfit like Lycoming or similar.
