WELL... !
I did buy a turbo "upgrade" for my B4 about the time "fly-by-night" Prothe started his online business, so actually not too bad duration BUT !
1. NEVER got the turbo to spool correctly
2. NEVER got the power needed but plenty of unused fuel
3. MANY times R & R turbo and other pieces(vacuum, etc...)

SO YEAH! Prothe should be impaled by one of his turbo shafts spinning ~ 180K !

And now, have to dish out more $ for new QUALITY turbo, then drain combustion chamber of the oil from the turbo seal "-(
