Good info/troubleshooting. Boosting puts a lot of fuel in the engine which will cool the exhaust. Cruising is of course on the lean side. Is it possible your timing marks are not correct? How is the performance?
An occlusion in the turbo oiling would cause a failure quickly if bad enough to make the housing glow.
