When you say "turbo system" what are you meaning? Just the turbo? Or, turbo, I/C, full exhaust system, engine management, etc?

I would think if any material made it to the turbo, then you would see signs of FOD. Might not be visible to the naked eye... might even be hairline cracks in the blades, etc. BUT, if the engine suffered catastrophic failure, what ever happened inside of the engine, the exhaust valve would have to be open, and then the foreign object had to have traveled to the turbine wheel.... highly unlikely.

I am not saying I would not do it, but if you put the turbo, I/C, etc on your engine, and there are foreign objects that cause damage to your engine, who is going to absorb the cost??
