Yeah, they tell me that, but my turbo has a complete no fault 1 year warranty, and if it goes after that, well, turbos are wear items. what they don't tell you though is that the extra fuel hitting the turbine blades and igniting helps keep the turbo spooled. not good for the turbos life but does keep it spooling. and my transient response time is almost non existent so theres almost no turbo lag. that and man I love the psshhhh sound between shifts.

All these guys do is drive too fast, work on cars, chase ******* and drink.. really no fun at all...
