I am boosting 9 psi from a standard TD04-09 turbo. And does boosting like say 15 psi or so, generate more heat in the turbo?

yeah the more boost and the faster the turbo works the more heat it generates

I have been reading on a vw website and I think it's very good (turbocharger theory) and this site as well (Stealth 316 - Turbo Outlet Temperature). I thought it would be helpful for all of you.
