Been studying this issue as I use my car as a daily driver and don't enjoy my truck.

Seen a comparison of these turbos and here is what it looks like.
BW turbo is heavy and big.
Cheaper price with apparent good reliability.
Makes slightly more power but I'll never see it until I go g50 or 930 gearboxes.
Slower boost response by 400 rpm.
Changes to my oiling system etc.

I still need to check to see if this issue is me related. But if it's not me related, I think it's way too soon. My car is not over stressed, my gearbox and tires are, but the engine and turbo are not.
Do I let it cool properly? Yes I do, The last couple miles are coast cool down driving both ways, to and from work. On runaround errand drives, there are less cool down times, but those are not as frequent.
I don't know, maybe I need a turbo timer.
Turbo powa!
1977 911s. it's cool
