1) Re Rod's high EGT's - maybe a good experiment for less than $100 shipped to his door would be to fit a muffler delete pipe and see if the improved exhaust flow decreases this high EGT problem. If it cures it, $100 fix! If it improves it but not by enough, at least you have much better confidence that a 4" turbo back system will improve it even more!
2) Been reading a post about a US guy who's turbo shaft snapped! There was a comment that this problem could have been caused by 'imbalance' caused by having a high-flow air cleaner, a 6637, and the stock 3.5" exhaust (LIKE I HAVE)!
