    turbo's do have a lifespan, depending on how they are looked after. 100k is a bit of a wild figure to pluck out of the air though

    note, the turbo is not 'in' unless you are under any kind of load irrespective of speed

    regular oil changes are a top idea.

    So what sort of money is ok to pay for getting it mapped once I've put my turbo kit on?
    I know what's involved in putting the kit on,manifold,oil feed intercooler pipe etc so what would be after that? And also is it easier cheaper to do this on a say 320 6cylinder?
    Thanks for all the info,really helping

    good thing to do when you run a turbo'd motor.
    when you get home or turn the engine off is to let it idle for at least a minimum 30 secs. this gives the oil a chance to cool down on return from the turbo, yhus prolonging the life.... i should know, i ran one for over 120k in a subaruand its still the original
