    Letting turbo's cool up and down?

    Just got my vxr, not a whizz kid on turbo's, pretty sure i should be letting it warm up and down as turbo still spinning if i turn it straight off and will blow up if i don't? Is it still the case, and how much should i let it warm up and down?

    Thanks

    Usually around 50 secs on a normal drive and a few minutes if a spirited one. That's what i do

    However everyone has different theories about this so you will get a lot of varied answers on the subject

    Warm up - I bring up the "Test Mode" Menu and make sure the temp goes above 85-ish before I give it some, .

    Cool down - Normal Driving, 1 minute or 2, after a hard drive, around 5 minutes, .

    I just take it steady round the residential area before my house. Changing gear early so as not to hit boost. Then just give it 10-20 seconds once I have stopped.

    same as buckle, give it 3 miles before useing boost from start, though set off pretty much straight away, and 3 miles off boost on way home, leaving car running for 30seconds at most

    Dont do either. I just take it easy at the begginning and end of each journey. And usually in the middle aswell.
    For free hugs PM me.
