    to bed the rings in the engine will need to see a bit of boost.... read this and digest it...
    Breaking in techniques - Please read the first 2 pages before making assumptions - SEAT Cupra.net - SEAT Forum

    ...first 50-100 miles are the most important... load up but don't rev too high... being gentle is not the way to do it...

    Use mineral or running in oil initially... DO NOT use synthetic oil... the point of running in is to promote wear on the rings/bores so you get a decent seal...

    Don't plug the n75 in till its mapped! Your running a 15psi actuator now , on your original map it'll kill the turbo! Or at least run far to much boost...

    The EGT boss on the turbo hotside needs to be machined down a bit to allow the probe to be screwed in properly

    After market probe won't be calibrated to what the ECU is expecting...

    Might be possible to make a small sleeve that extends the end of the nut to hold the probe in properly

    I wouldn't use a welder near the probe, the heat generated by the weld might be more than the probe can handle.

    I would get a tight fitting bolt in the origonal EGT probe hole, then weld a boss as close as you can on the Downpipe. then get the mapper to alter the Egt trigger... That way the head stops on...
