    Interesting data. I wonder if the extra heat not dissipated by the turbo would lower the life, since you are also increasing the temperature of the turbo (bearing life, etc).

    I would assume that there would be some drop in the life of the turbo. However, I am also sure that it could probably be mitigated with a good oil cooler to dissipate the extra heat put into the oil. I would presume that the materials themselves would not have a noticeable reduction in life unless there was a manufacturing defect that otherwise would not have been a problem.
