Have you heard of a dealership doing that? Assuming voids warranty right?
The only dealership I would guess would do it is the Austin Infiniti dealership; they are very mod-friendly and are actually testing new things (including aftermarket intercoolers).

Nah, he could drive up to GoAuto from LI and see Farooq, since he has recently installed Pure Turbos & AMS Injectors in @JohnInNH 's Q50.

Hey all- a few weeks after the turbo replacement I smelled gas in my garage after a spirited drive. Started it up and saw a leak coming from the fuel line. This connection was loose:
23444



Had to get the car towed in. They are ordering a new fuel line and said there was a failure at the oring interface. Not sure what to make of it, I see that connection style and it seems reuse could have stressed that plastic clip mechanism. They claim this is the only time they've seen this, but just figured Id post this in case anyone else has a similar concern after turbo replacement!

So any percentages and analytics on the percent of Turbo failures and at what mileage etc?

So I'm at 23,000+ miles with no issues, however, the manual does say this:
4. Warm-up
Allow the engine to idle for at least 30
seconds after starting. Do not race the
engine while warming it up. Drive at
moderate speed for a short distance
first, especially in cold weather.

Since I'm right by a freeway I let my Q warm up for a full 2 minutes as per the trip timer before I pull out of the garage.

My car is at 65k miles and turbos are still fine. I had JB4 installed since 42K on +6 PSI peak and Ecutek tuned since 58K on 20 PSI map every time. I am installing FDP's this week. I make sure I do not go into boost until car is fully warmed up and wait a couple of minutes before I turn the car off after some spirited driving. I am hoping to upgrade to Pure's next year at the latest so I don't care if the turbos go bad anytime soon.
