Surely with > modern oils this isn't as good as posters suggest? There are lots of reasons why a car might get a recon engine. For instance, in the UK oil changes are rarely done religiously, even less so once a car hits its 5-7th birthday. It is not uncommon to see a 10-12 year old car with 3 year old oil in it. This is bad enough for NA engines, but it's terrible for turbo engines. -- Grunff
