My friend has them and said they weren't bad.

I know heat soak is a serious issue with these cars so I have been thinking about an intercooler. I may just invest in that then. I know the turbo rattle is normal and I hear it but if I ever ran into the issue of no boost bc the wastegates failed I would rather be able to swing up to the dealer than have to take the DPs off first.
