Re: Turbo Timer? Manditory? (Beaker)
a timer is more critical when you're chipped or have upgraded the turbo. in stock form, the k03 probably doesn't need much attention. but it's been a while since i've been stock
think of it this way, if you're running an AWD or AWW @ twice the boost, you already know how much hotter the engine bay is versus stock.
yes, your turbo is watercooled, but the coolant stops circulating once the engine is off. i don't think stagnant coolant is gonna do you much good.
good rule of thumb is to idle down after long trips or "sprited" driving. in most cases, you probably can get by just by taking it easy for the last few miles before your destination.
