Blouch 18g blown in less then a year. FPred blown in 6 months.... need I go on? I changed these off of friends cars. It happens to ANY turbo. Luck of draw and proper installation. I know people who got like two years out of ebay $300 turbos so your blanket statement means nothing to me. I got 80k (5years) hard miles out of a fake green.
