    As of the last oil change, Mobil 1 0W40 full synthetic. I'd just been using the standard issue Castrol GTX 5W30 up until then.

    I think I was running 0w40, and that had somethign to do with killing my turbo, because it was so thin?

    It shouldn't have, but I don't know anything about aftermarket turbos. With stock parts as long as it conforms to that VW 502.00 standard (or something like that) there shouldn't be a problem.
