1.8T engine

Any ideas about general durability of the 1.8T engine?  I've
always enjoyed the 200k without touching _anything_ nature
of the 2.3l I5, and hope the V6 will be similar.  The 1.8T
is considerably more stressed, no?

Anyone know the history of this engine, and/or what has been
done to harden it?
