            It's an oil restrictor - brings the oil pressure going into the turbo down so stops the seals popping - won't be the cause of the turbo cracking though imo that will be down to heat

                They are built to glow m8 - I wouldn't worry, just allow warm up and cool down in to your driving

                    where abouts has it cracked? on the turbo or on the manny?

                    all i can say is you must be driving it very hard to get the eg temp very high as its eg temp that cracks the mannys... further most can cause major engine melt down...

                    whats stage are you running? what map? blue fin, eds, courts? ect

                      seems hes not on il answer for him lol, he stage 2 blufin, got cdti tubing with KnN FILTER on, ram air grill scoop.

                      he been driving hard testing above 6k as its been playing up, ie feels like losing boost on high revs.

                      look at his "crossover problem" post

                              maybe me but if i noticed my car was not running right i wouldnt rag it to find out whats the problem is.. id be getting it plugged into a tech2...

                              this is just a open guess but from what you have just put an the manny cracking id say extreme eg temp, this could be a number of factors but id say its not fueling right, because if the ecu noticed the engine is getting abit to hot it can up the fuel slightly (over fuel, make it run lean) as this will aid in cooling alittle..
