I think that is because that is all they get of a warranty from the manufacture. Steph has said several times that they they have only seen 2 failures in the 1.5 years they have been using them.

thats bullshit, that comes right out of a comic book.

iam sure i read a customer had a failed shanghai turbo it was over the 15day warranty he put 500miles on his turbo and it failed!!! he contacted begi and begi said it was due to oil starvation but the turbo wasnt starved of oil was actually due to bearing failure!!! so ended up losing out!!!!
found it!!!!!!!! post by Mavalex!! http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.p...1&#entry698061 details are in the 12th post!
