That and IC piping that doesn't wind all over the engine bay and over the top of the front turbo.

I purchased a car I am waiting to get picked up and shipped to me that has DR650 turbos on it. Awesome to read this!

it seems my TT engine bay gets really hot and heat soaked. I did ceramic coating of my upper plenum, but it still gets hot to the touch. My guess is that the bulk of the heat is the radiator cooling, not turbo/exhaust heat, but I could be wrong because i've not had a chance to compare my TT car engine bay temps with a NA car engine bay temps.

The most glaring difference between my EVO IX and my VR4 is the massive hood vent that all EVO's have.

Most modern high power vehicles now have hood/engine bay vents to help manage heat. So that's No 2 on my list of planned upgrades for phase 2 of my build.
