$100 to make your engine last alot longer. If you dont let it cool down, the turbo will cook its own bearings.
Thanks for the link.... I'll look into it.

Takes thousands of hours of operation with out a cool down to mess up a turbo. I don't think that if you're short on time and need to shut down and run....You'll be fine. 100'* of times over none the less.
Turbo'* generate heat from boost, and the bearings spinning well above 10,000RPM easy. If he'* hot footing it around town, or playing in the country and stops at a park, the turbo will keep the same oil in the housing, and it doesn't take long, We wouldn't be telling him this like mad if we didn't think it was valid.

10.000 RPM??

Turbos run @ about 100.000-120.000 RPM....

And yes, cooling the turbo down by letting the car idle for 2-3 minutes will save your turbos lifetime a lot!

The hot oil in the turbo will turn in to this white substace (donīt know what its called in english) , and eventually that substance will clog your bearings, and the tubes/pipes running from/to the turbo, messing the turbo up bad!

Turbo coolers in all its glory, but save the money and just sit in the car a few extra minutes instead...

She'* my Sunday car..... Knight Fire was purchased to be my daily driver.... Knight Fire is clearly faster and there are more performance parts for the L67 then the old LN3.

The turbo is just to give Black Magic one last performance upgrade... the big one... if you will. I'll take her for a weekend at the track, and then no more.

The transmission that was rebuilt last year, was built to take the power the turbo for normal daily driver, but not regular abuse at the track. When I had the tranny installed, I didn't even know there was a 1/4 mile in NS (I don't think there was at the time) so it wasn't planned to be abused at the track. It was just built up enough to handle the day to day power of either a SC or a turbo....... not for the track.

Two days at the track for Black Magic, and then no more. I just want to see what she'll do on the 1/4. Just to see what an old 87-91 could do, with the right equipment under the hood.
