Because if something goes wrong its going to be BIG. With the constant heat and cool downs turbos will essentially lose their settings as it were, fins can bend, housings can crack, BOV can be stuck closed and probably the biggest reason why we dont see more is because there are so many retarded people out there that they think just because they want to save some money and that all gas is the same they will run 87 octane instead of 93 and will pretty much kill the motor. There is just too many stupid out there for turbos on gas engines. Now if we were in England-land a turbo diesel vw or anything along that matter would be fine.
