They are actually quite reliable if tuned properly. You'd have to be trying to put down some pretty serious power to blow up an M30... and even then there are a number of other parts that will fail before the motor will.

My car is running and it cost less than half that.... but it's one of the biggest heaps around the turbo parts the are from the China cabinet
