How many miles on your stockers?

Around 100k miles......all stock boost level until the last 15k miles..they have been pushing 20psi and are starting to smoke a little as I'm coasting to a stop. PCV system is in good shape and I have an OCC...so I'm guessing it's turbo(s) related.

Viv 17t’s are proven to last. I know of a few people who have been running them for 20k+ miles. I’m running 19t’s I had upgraded and rebalanced by turbo labs.
That's good to know.....I might roll the dice and order a pair of the 17t's from VIV. It's either that, or go with a new set of stockers from FCP Euro.

I’d go with 17t’s from viv. Unlike certain American companies, they always back their product and will warranty the turbos if anything goes wrong with them.

How was your experience with Turbo Lab?
It was great, but I’ve heard that their turnaround time and communication has completely fallen apart lately. Lol..... I’m glad I was one of the first people to get my 19t’s over to them. I only communicated with them through Facebook, and they were pretty responsive. I had to ask them a question a second time once or twice.
