Default why water on turbo???

I disconnected the water from my turbo and my oil temp are way cooler.
I do run a oil cooler. Water temp run 89-97 DEG C and the oil 78-90.

Why are water flow installed on turbo's?

Or just leave your engine running for 30 seconds before you shut it off - better yet don't park your car while buzzing your engine to 6 grand and full boost.

So you pulled the water line from your oil/water cooled turbo?

Not a good thing- center sections are designed a bit different for water cooled turbos and they do not like to have a lack of coolant..

My turbo is oil only (aftermarket) and I just let it idle for 30-1min after driving anywhere...

What? You dont do 75 down the highway and come to an instant stop in the mall parking lot? Are you saying you have 2-3 min of driving through the parking lot till you find a space, which cools the turbo down 100% as much as letting the car idle and waste gas? That turbo timers are and have been a waste of money and effort since the advent of modern water cooled turbos?

Is that what you are saying?

hahahaha love it! i smoked one turbo and it was on my diesel... i was hammering past a car on the freeway when a cop pulled me over
he was mad enough to yell at me to turn that f####### thing off!
bye bye turbo. would a timer have helped i think not

water cooled turbos are really so much cooler anyways its kinda silly to think you need to cool them down.

you would have to pull off the highway into your garage to need a tubo timer.......oh and live a 10,000 ft and be driving up hill

well you get the idea. but hey its your money right

oh sorry to stray from the post
