In my **opinion** Bill, yes. One of the most desirable
characteristics of synthetic oil in a TURBO car is its ability to
resist coking/burning onto turbo bearings *which are usually just a
bushing, not even a bearing. If synthetic did not prevent such a
failure, it almost certainly would considerably extend the service
life of the turbo before it would fail.
That's my **opinion**, and I'm stickin' to it.
