Subject: Re: Average Turbo Engine life


It is not uncommon for the Saab 2 litre turbo engine to last for 200,000 miles (320,000km) without any major work at all. I had a T16S of 1990 vintage that had done 215,000 miles when I sold it, all without ever had an engine rebuild, and with the original turbo. As far as I know, it's still going strong. Oh, and it still produced 190 bhp on a rolling road test. Secret of long life - frequent oil changes, and synthetic oil.
