This seems to be more of a thinly-veiled band-aid fix to compensate for using an undersized turbo, rather than a neat tech feature. I'm not sold on the idea. It clearly works, until the air charge is overheated past the point of of producing power and forcing the ECU to pull timing, reducing power even further...which is why it only happens in bursts, I'm sure. Will it prevent me from buying one? Probably not. Is it worth all of the hype? Probably not.
