Yikes! I thought the Garret models would do better and "safer" since  
rebuild parts are easier to come by. What do you think happened in  
your failures? Too much boost? Not enough oil or coolant? Would you  
suggest getting a KKK (ie real RS2 turbo) over any Garret of similar  

I probably won't be tracking all that often, but the high altitude  
here will spin that sucker up pretty good on a regular basis.

For the clutch and flywheel, I'm trying the kevlar disk option with  
the SPEC clutch kit as well as the SPEC aluminum flywheel. Looks  
good, hope it holds up well enough.
