Hondo it all makes sense!!Its obvious that the oil change times are very spaced out even if you stuck the very best oil in your car.For the sake of 30 every 6- 7000 miles it would be far better than shelling out 2000 for new turbo and ancilleries!!BUT i also have to stress to you Hondo,what about the people who are changing their oil regular and still having problems?The oil does play a very important part in the well being of your engine and turbo and you cant just go and shove any old crap in.Ive seen the effects of cheap oil in my dads old 1.3 Escort!Its not a pretty sight when you remove the rocker cover to find a realy thick black sludge circulating around your engine!!!So i think personally that with your oil change you should also consider an engine flush aswell.Anyway my take on things is good quality oil changed at regular intervals with the occasional engine flush.
