Re: Hot turbo? (dmbmoe41)

If you are driving hard in the boost a lot then yes it is normal. I don't have a turbo timer so at night I pop the hood open and wait till the glow goes away until I shut off the engine.

Re: Hot turbo? (DimcheMKV)

It's really not that hard to do with a chip. I never really looked at it when I was stock but I'm driving an AWW so boost was real low stock. You should try it with a stock AWP. I just take this one road that's like this long down hill sweeper and boost through 4th gear. Get home and have this nice orange glow splashed across the firewall.

Yes it can be normal. It usually only happens after the engine has been through a tough workout though. Please make sure you idle the engine for a while if you know it's glowing. It'll do your engine and your turbo good.
