The initial symptom has hissing/whooshing sound during WOT. Comparing datalogs in particular the lower WGDC showed a pre-turbo exhaust leak. After torching off the heat shield (kinda sketchy, not recommended) and using an inspection mirror I found the 1 inch split. Without a doubt extended periods of WOT fatigued the flex joint. If you never go WOT past 4th you'll probably be ok.
