The Shuenk IS38+ turbocharger that I installed in my GTI three years ago, in July of 2019, is still in the car and chugging along without issue.
Last year at this time I had been thinking of moving on to something larger in support of testing products that may be better at showing differences when paired with a bigger, slower responding, turbo.
Those plans went by the wayside as I undertook road testing of some intakes, downpipes, and intercoolers.
I still intend to move on to using a different turbocharger. When will be dependent upon a lull showing up in the vehicle-based testing that has been a steady draw on my time.
The Shuenk IS38+ has given me three years, and counting, of trouble-free operation.
