Dave:
Thank you for the additional information. Since you challenge my statements I find it interesting your discussion moves from being responsible for, to being a victim of, several poor design features that compounded to engine failure in only 3,000 miles of street driving. This only brings me to three conclusions:
1) You conducted or paid someone for a dirty engine rebuild on a 20 year old engine (you don’t give mileage). Don’t feel bad it happens very frequently, turboed or not.
2) In combination, you cooked your engine. You are responsible for keeping your engine in normal operating parameters regardless the circumstances. If you had not allowed the engine core to reach extreme temperatures the oils viscosity would not have broken down. This happens too, turboed or not.
3) You are in denial about these two issues but watch out on the second one, most modern engines the ECM will tell on you. .
