    well im running stage 2 with 63mm pipework custom exhaust
    so around the 260-280mark
    i think my cooler was cause lack or airflow to radiator
    as my temps were continuously above 90 with the heating system on full wack lol

    well im planning a new engine either way if i can get a leh i will but if not ill settle for anything with good milage

    mine was 38k

    Guess piston 3 is the one closest to the turbo and adsorbing most the heat?

    Plus the fact that all the runners of the manifold gather in front of cylinder 3 doesn't help.

    Bummer dude
