Did you buy a previously modded, used one? Or has it been one owner, new?

You know, just to compare oranges to oranges here. Not oranges to left foot slippers.

Chalk this up to owners ignorance. Buying modded cars in the used market is a bad idea unless you know the reputation and quality of care. I'm also willing to be that he bought used turbos, because they were cheap, and which were almost already on the way out too. That's the only way I can think of blowing 4 of them in a short timeframe.

The oil line? Yeah, that moves a lot when replacing turbos.
