Re: Turbo diesels

I think if I had one I would replace the turbo around the factory recommended interval and save the old one as a spare. All the debate on whether it will run without can be summed up by "Not well if at all" But then I wouldn't own one at least if there was a choice.

The reason they are so prevalent is HP/weight ratios and simply to sell them. Cars are made to showcase the new tech to create a market for new tech. Ever driven a new Cadillac with the 4 cyl turbo, try it you'll like it.
