Aluminum will not burn at these temperatures. Exhaust cooling is not such an issue once the exhaust leaves the turbo. The ID of this system should be sufficient to compensate for any expansion I would think.

Also, aluminum will not discolor. It will however oxidize.
What about a spool piece in Stainless from the turbo to the muffler and alu. from there out?
" Porsche there is no substitute" I always liked that saying. Air cooled is the only way to go!
