Exclamation Heat Exchanger Melting!!!

I just swapped the right heat exchanger on my 911 S with turbo engine..

Three days ago i noticed the engine starts to have bad IDLE once it is warm and kept going for a while...

As i stopped on a traffic light, it died...

Today i drove around, night came, and realized the newchanged HE was RED, like lava.....meaning what?? is this normal?? is this related to the IDLE Problem??...

I believe this is why IDLE is down when the engine is hot....right side HE is MELTING!!!...

Any thoughts??

Need Help !!


This is the HE I installed, euro, but the muffler is different, two pipes, one goes straight from the waste gate...

Ignition is Electronic, Crane Cams installed and Status light Okay...
