I just got mine completely replaced and asked them about it. They redesigned a lot of the parts in the turbo, the whole wastegate and the oil cooling. The wastegate is longer and the spring is stronger supposedly. I guess the problem is not supposed to come back again (from what they said) once this is all replaced. Nice having a $3000 job covered under warranty!
