    Turbo failure was said to be due to an oil leak. Hard shifting/no power when i'd hit the gas. Replaced and haven't had a problem with it since...have a whole host of other issues though :(

    seems like the turbo gauge is not accurate...while I have power I have seen the indicator get into the 'red'
