It is a complete system with turbo, IC, exhaust header, oil lines, etc.

If I buy and put on the system and my engine blows up, I would have very little recourse. That is why I want to know what are the possibilities.

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??
