The turbo failing sounds more like a defect in the turbo than a lack of BOV or slightly different oil. Especially considering that the stock turbos survive quite a long time with no BOV and oil technology from the 80s.

How are the BRD bushings for noise and vibration compared to stock? I went with far too stiff stuff for everything and have some clunks I want to be rid of, I thought it was my coilovers but I took those out and the noise is still there so I think it's the bushings.

I like my BRD bushings, didnt have much seat time with the new bushings to tell you that much! (Not driving the car at the moment because of the Turbo) But soo far I have no complaints, they also offer a solid mount for the rear differential but I just opted for the Polyurethane mount because I want more of a street/comfortable car.

I looked at your profile and noticed you're located in Canada. There is a company that's Canadian based, called XIII Motorsports, and they offer bushings as well for the ST185 maybe you could give them a call.

I have that kit in my car already actually, I like how it feels to drive but I think it might be causing some of the cabin drone since it's so solid.
