A new turbo should last a lot, lot longer than 1500 miles .

turbos don,t commonly fail in themselfs it is normally caused by oil issues or cooling all to do with the engine.
i would go back to the garage that fitted it as its sounds like they havnt cured the problem that caused it to fail originally.

correction i see you fitted it, did you renew the oil feed pipe to the turbo and check flow on return pipe
