I'm interested in replacing my VF40, before it fails, but I don't want to replace with a shiny 16G or 18G only to have it fail.

Most repeated failures I've heard about have been after a previous failed turbo, if mine never fails, and I replace it, am I in the clear?
Failures have happened. Most of them have been due to oil starvation.
