damn good question. the ceramic wheels spool faster but are more fragile under high boost. I wonder myself as I'm in the same boat (with an R32 GTR). In theory, the wheels will fail and the bits and pieces will shoot out the exhaust. The bad part is if any shattered turbine bits get sucked into the intake (and thus into the engine).

Anyways, the hope is that they will last until I've got the quid to put in some steel turbine BB turbos (N1, GTSS, or GT2530)...knock on wood!

im just worried cos i do drive my cars hard, but always warm up and cool down though.

do they gradually brake or do they just go??

On 1 bar boost you should have no major problems,as long as your letting the car warm and cool down.If the turbos do blow,thats it.Iv just fitted Gtss turbos,they pull a treat and at the bottom end,where power counts on the roads.

AFAIK max peak for standard turbo's is 1bar.

ive recently booked mine in for steel internals to be fitted as i'm off to the ring in september and have been told the stardard turbo's might not like the autobahn speeds and ring abuse
