You have to be careful not to boost too much in extremely cold weather. I was set at 7psi in Florida, and now my boost creeps up to 11 from 5k rpm's and above. So far I've had 2 exhaust leaks. :shakehead After a good 1000miles, get your car on a lift and torque down your bolts. Also check the bolts that connect the wastegate to your exhaust manifold. It's kinda hard to get your hands in there, but it'll save you some trouble down the road.
