    They aren't really. When they do fail it's because it's an extremely hot object spinning at over 100k rpm.

        My current V6TT still has its stock turbos in it after 27 years
        How much reliability you want c**t?

        Yes because we won WWII with compound turbocharging.

        Depends on the type of car.
        If it's a straight line only American car I'd go with the V8.
        If it's a track car then I'd pick the V6

    Turbos aren't inherently unreliable. Look at diesel trucks. The failure in modern passenger cars comes from putting tiny little 1.6l engines in 4000lb suvs and forcing the turbo to basically work full time to even move the car.

      Some engines like the 1st generation Mazda Skyactiv-G 2.5l turbo does spin the turbo right off the engine idle rpm.

    you can't give poor wrenchlets sensitive technology, they don't even maintain their bodies why do you think they can manage a complex piece of machinery kek. So stupid

    Turbos are inherently unreliable in gasoline engines. Turbos first get lots of heat from engine and engine exhaust system, then turbos heat up even more because of high rotation(most modern ones up 300000rpm) speeds which also creates even more heat, so much heat that the turbo literally glows red color when you go hard on throttle. This heat cooks the engine oil prematurely from good oil to bad oil. When turbo gets worn or old enough it will leak oil into the engine cylinders burning chambers, also out of the exhaust pipe, sometimes even leak oil straight out of the turbo casing due to cracked casing or leaking seals.

      Wrong. Almost all turbo failures are due to undersized turbos riding their redlines in normal use and moronic oil change intervals. If you choose a turbo that isn't spun at max rated RPM constantly in normal use and use synthetic oil, changed within a reasonable number of miles (NOT 8-10,000mi) a turbo will last just fine. Remember, a typical turbo system only has four (4) extra moving parts vs NA.

    I haven't seen turbos as prone to failure.
    Usually it's the transmission or crank bearings that go even on turbo cars. There are cases of oil blockage in the feed to the turbo causing turbo failure but generally they last a really long time.
