Nice. I've been relatively lucky as well. Up to 90K miles now, banjo bolt filter was checked at 86K and clean. Maybe after 100K I'll remove it?

Turbo has very minimal shaft play at 86K miles, but I want to keep an eye on it at future intervals just to make sure everything is OK. ("zipper" sounds still make me twinge a little even though I have not personally experienced a turbo failure.) The worst thing that happened to me at Stage 2 was splitting of the endtanks on the intercooler.

My OCI with non-synthetic oil has been 3500mi and the car will consume about a quart of oil between changes.
