Not sure if this is the best forum but I found the article interesting. I am VERY glad GM chose to not mimic Ford and stayed away from small displacement turbo engines.

AFM has only caused slight to major oil consumption issues not any other issues. Ford Twin turbos have had problems like setting fire to themselves and almost killing owners which is much worse than needing to check your oil more often and top it off.

I still dont feel like turbo technology has come far enough to have reliable longevity to it. All those VW turbos only last to around 70-75k tops around here. Then ford says "we dont just have 1 but TWIN TURBOS!", i would hate to own one once the warranty stops cuz thats gonna be a second mortgage on the house to fix.01' 1500 LT Z71 ECSB 5.3L
