I know very little about turbos. Is the turbo temp close to the same at all ranges of boost? I mean, with my light driving the boost gauge on the dash, for what its worth, stays low almost all the time. My driving doesn't ask for the boost or horse power. I also rarely eoc, often once per trip for the last half mile of my road where I have to come to a stop anyways. I find p&g/dfco added to neutral coasting more than adequate to appease my desired mpg.
