I'm confused as to how you're destroying turbos... I destroyed a turbo on my truck by trying to push too much boost but it sounds like you're barely pushing anything. What has been your peak boost with the turbos that died? What "bigger" turbo are you running? On another note, I think you need to re-work your exhaust manifold if you're putting on a bigger turbo because the passages and outlet are too small. Also, is your wastegate rod adjusted tight enough? Is it converted to a pressure setup rather than a vacuum? If it's still vacuum, it won't develop any boost without a line.

Sorry if any of this is repeating knowlege you already know...
