Default staying alive

Hi all, I have a 2000 9-5 2.3 that has 212k miles. I have the car for 4 years after buying it at 124k. It has been good to me, at least compared to the horror stories out there. I have done most of the maintenance myself, such as suspension,brakes,exhaust, fuel system, electrical issues and other minor work. I recently put in the pcv upgrade. The oil pan and cam area had no sludge, just a bit of varnish. The car is still on its original alternator and starter. Has not had a tranny or engine rebuild. I would appreciate any and all advice on how to get another several years out of this angel. Should i put in a new timing chain and gear set? Would new oil pump gears be a prudent measure? As of now, the car still has plenty of pep. Compression readings on each cylinder is around 150 psi. Thanks for your help.
