as darkrider said, NA supra, TT supra..both are as reliable..its just the turbo that isnt lasting forever, after 100+ km u gotta change it
Obviously the turbo puts more stress on the engine. After a few years of driving it should be obvious which would need the engine rebuild sooner. There's a reason why your compression has to be fairly good inorder to run a turbo in your car.
