As soon as it hits the track for an extended time I will have some more answers for you.
Do you have any data logs for post compressor IATs, oil temps, and coolant temps? Drifitng is part throttle/full throttle/part throttle/full throttle/part throttle/full throttle..track work is a lot more full throttle.

Interested to see some data from extended track use. A graph with time on the x axis and IATs/coolant/oil temps on the y axis would be great.
