When the water temp gauge reaches 90*C on the dash, MES is showing 70*C so the car is definitely not ready for hard accelerations

I also changed my turbo and oil feed line to the upgraded one but my turbo housing cracked as the 1. owner did not have a DP and apparently liked to highway fry the car

change the oil in MAX 10 kkm, not a km more (I do it every 7kkm)

as mentioned above, buy a better DP with/without a cat

4 turbos in ~66 tkm is not normal - something is clogged up, mechanic did not clean the whole system after turbo blew up, or the oil is not changed or there is a injector leaking bad

my 2 cents

Picking up on IgoRR's comment: in the Giuletta the temp gauge is actually not showing temp at higher level.
It bounces between 70 & 90° not as temp, but whether the thermostat is open or closed.
At least on post facelift models.

Really stupid since accurate temperature is available.

And yes, all cars should have oil temperature.

Considering the complex algorithms they have to turn off the "blue" system, it shouldn't be a challenge to do something similar for limiting the turbo based on oil temperature etc.
