[200q20v] IA III+ = turbo replacement in a year or two?

When I  bought my 3+ from Ned (personal friend) he told me that as long as
the turbo was in good shape before the upgrade and was not abused after it
should be fine. The 3+ does wind a K24 pretty tight though so keep your oil
fresh, let it cool before shutting it off, keep you air filter in good shape
and it should be ok.


BTW, it's been 2 years and 45,000 miles since the upgrade. :-)
