Hey guys. Just wanted to throw this out there to the collective wisdom of the site. Any idea why my turbo would get so hot on the compressor side that it would melt the rubber coupler on my S&B intake? Here's some pics. The dark spot on the housing in the first pic is melted rubber.

Wow I have only seen that in the big diesels useually caused from over fueling and burning in the turbo it self.

Oil analysis looks great and I've been doing a lot of datalogging each time that I tow, so temps aren't out of line. Truck runs pretty good. In the meantime, I have swapped the stock intake back in (with a new filter) and it seems to spool the turbo quite a bit easier. Perhaps the S&B filter media was somehow clogged... :dunno: Since I'm very religious about maintenance.
