Who has the most miles on their factory turbo?
As the title states...I searched a bunch of combinations of keywords and couldn't find any thread like this.

Who's got the most miles on the stock turbo for their 4th gen? Kind of like a mass game of chicken; you want to win, but at the same time, winning doesn't bode well...:lol:

Who's got what?

one guys has over 200 000 miles on his at stage 2

VermontGT 12-19-2012 06:19 PM

frank_ster 12-19-2012 06:23 PM

head over to:

I'm on my 3rd. pulled my original at 98k. the spool had a little shaft play. pulled my second when it had 120k on it or so. it had more play on it....another 5k and it would've been bad.

I'm on my first at 125000 miles (Car). From info I got from the cars PO, the Turbo should be around 105000-110000 miles.

I've followed that thread for a bit. My question is specifically aimed at the originally-installed turbo. Anyone?

Edit: re: c-lo

104,000 miles. And it appears to be in fine condition.

i just bought an '05 with 116k on it. the carfax showed the previous (original) owner had every service done at the dealership - no signs of turbo replacement.

Mine was also replaced by PO only because he upgraded to a 20G.

frank_ster 12-19-2012 08:02 PM

mine was on my car for 150 000 km now its on my bosses car since his vf46 died because of the stupid banjo screen filter shit thing. his died at 130 000

145K miles with no problems (except for front control arm bushings).

I'm not going to "win" this thread by any means, but mine has ~98K and I can't discern any more shaft play on it than I would expect of a new turbo.

That would be HAMMERDOWN, 209,000+ miles.

He'll chime in soon.

Mine lasted 142,000 miles.

are you trying to figure out how many miles you can push it?
