Are you able to get the expected maximum boost (especially soon after
one of the "warnings"? If not, the problem is likely a defective
MFTS--or the connector. In fact, I believe a bad MFTS connector will
actually _prevent_ the hi-temp warning, so it's probable that an MFTS
problem of this sort would be internal to the MFTS.
