Dgc333 I have been driving turbo charged cars continuously since 1985 and have accumulated almost 700,000 miles between (4) cars. My current one had only 120,000 so far. I have never had a turbo failure.

Unless I was running hard in boost for an extended time immediately before stopping I have not treated the motor any differently than a non turbo. After running hard I would let the motor idle for 30 seconds or so before shutting off the engine.

There is no real need for a turbo timer IMHO.

cbdallas Be your own turbo timer. Stay out of boost for the last minute of driving, and you've already cooled it down as much as a turbo timer would. Cruising around a parking lot in search of a space, or driving down the street to your house is accomplishing the same thing.

Turbo Timer

Anyone have a turbo timer installed?? If so which kind do you have. I'm thinking of installing one on my 09. Mike (Blue 09 sedan w/ gold engine bay) has an APEXi timer installed on his. He said it works well. I'm just trying to get some more opinions.
