    Question Quick poll: How long have your turbos lasted???

    Hi Chaps

    I was just wondering how long on average people turbos have lasted before they needed a new one fitted, whether it be an C20LET, Z20LET, Z20LEL or Z20LEH??

    I drive a 2002 Astra Coupe Turbo and still on the original turbo at 48k.

    Thanks

    Original turbo on my Zlet, a smidge under 30k, no smoke and seems to be running in good order.

    original turbo on my zlet was knackered when new managed to persuade dealer at 33k to change it. New VXR one has leaked ever since but no smoke or oil usage from it
