Default LS2 stroker single turbo setup...

I've had my motor at the machine shop, getting ready for some diamond pistons, compstar 6.125 rods, CNC'd SD LS3 heads, etc... for a single turbo build. I'm unsure as to how big i'm going to go with the turbo, but i want to hit 1000whp for sure. Rather than nitrate my stock crank, i went ahead and ordered a new 4.000 stroker crank from ohio crankshaft for the build. After talking to some guys with experience with these LS motors, I am worried about the running the stroker crank with a turbo setup. I was told that the heat generated will cause the bearings to fail in time... that has actually happened to a local guy with a similar setup as well... but I had written it off as bad luck. Do you guys have any input on the subject? Will i run into problems with a stroker on a turbo setup? I built this car to run as well, so i plan on laying into it often. thanks
