Seems weird that we're mostly seeing DBV turbos. I'm sure someone has posted it but I haven't seen that on a TPC or EQT turbo.
Quebster's is the first that I've seen where a blade in a DBV2 broke off on its own. Every other issue that I've seen has been FOD, as much as people want to make jokes about it, in the end it wasn't the turbo's fault.

I don't know why people are acting like all DBV2 turbos are falling apart when you had a mass production recall for EQT turbos that were defective and falling apart in the beginning. Littco was another known one, in the beginning, for not being reliable yet you don't hear people joking about those.

You must not have seen twists. Same failure. Yes, eqt and littco have had failures. They all have. None are immune.

I've seen Twist's. IIRC, he had some other issue that cause it to fail.

lol, you don't have to defend DBV turbos every time just because you have one. They've been blowing. I've seen it in facebook groups and other whatsapp groups as welll.
