Just an opinion. The B&B's are a nice system and a major improvement over the early US heat exchangers. Most know of there propensity to crack over time.

I believe there wast gate design is suspect. It adds unnecessary volume to the system and has been known to trick the WG into delivering a higher boost than spec. If one adds a turbo like a K29 or a HF with the smaller hot side and a big compressor wheel it exaggerates the WG issue and can make for over-boost. I had a .7 bar tial and some times pulled 1 bar do to over-boost. This and the lower restriction muffler seems to be where they get there HP.
