The only time I've seen a turbo fail this quickly was when one of the oil line 
gaskets was installed the wrong way up on an ur-quattro.  That particular 
gasket is assymetric, and thus constricted the oil flow through the turbo 
bearing to almost nothing.  Did you measure axial play and end float before you 
installed the turbo?
