Goran, I hope my reply doesn't sound like a lecture but once Adam moved from a 100% stock engine this operating condition was no longer a deficiency on the part of the Mitsubishi engineers. For the same reason you can not bring in their credentials to support assumptions of how far modifications have moved from some implied "safety zone".
I can make a blanket state regarding OE turbocharged cars. Their operating system components are closely matched for life vs cost to the specified power output. This means all attempts of power upgrade will compromise this balance and almost without exception in a negative direction. This is the technical and very real justification for voiding warranties when powertrain alterations are made by the owner.
