Blew Turbo, Again.

I blew another turbo today. So I just want to say to those people claiming to keep these things alive at 30+ psi that its bullsh!t. I kept mine from going past 29 and I still blew the crap out of it, in less then 5,000 miles. And it was brand new. I am seeing those numbers with stage 3 sticks.

Just thought I would let some of my feelings out.

Stage 3's and stock turbos shouldn't be used in the same sentence.

Thats what I am thinking is happening. Both have broke due to shaft play. I am just waiting to get a call back on what my next step will be. I know if they just replace it i will be destroying it again soon.
