I remember the issue with the screen in Scoobies clogging up and starving the turbo. The OEM rolled back to a 3,750 OCI to "solve" the issue. Fail Subbie!

I recall a high end performance Evolution shop that had failures with their turbos using regular Mobil 1 due to low levels of ZDDP. I'm trying to find their article about it, but still looking.

Edit: found it

FP Turbo failures

Summary, Mobil 1 may be fine for your grocery getter, but it fails under heavy demand.
