    Top 7 reasons a turbo fails:
    1 oil drain size is too small
    2. Block in crank case vent pressurizing oil pan not allowing oil to drain from turbo properly
    3. Oil level...more important on cars than on trucks
    4. Oil pressure
    5 .hot shut offs
    6 .improper oil weight
    7. Oil contamination

    Decided to go ahead and put a BW turbo on there along with a ceramic manifold. Among other parts....

    My turbo blew in my Volvo d12 they told me a leak in the cac caused it. Absolutely a leak will cause the turbo to over spin and blow
