guy i know from shepperton used to have an XF turbo and yeah, reckoned it absolutly flew when running right.

He popped piston number 3 when the wastegate got stuck wide open and it boosted to 32PSI! He originally though it was starting to run real well b4 looking at the booste gauge - then realised he was frying the both tyres in top gear at 130km/h, then bang.
