Agreed, I have an hour drive to my parents house on highway and unless I am accelerating to pass someone, cruising speed does not engage the turbo to my knowledge as the RPMs are usually lower than 3000.Unless you are constantly flooring it on the highway or live in the mountains, the car is not in boost at highway cruising speeds.
Well I guess my boost gauge is broken then because at 110 km/h, cruise set, the gauge is showing 2-3 psi which would then put the turbo in boost, but again my boost gauge must be broken.Unless you are constantly flooring it on the highway or live in the mountains, the car is not in boost at highway cruising speeds.
Cars today are not the same as they were 17 years ago. Not saying it's doing damage, it's just not preventing any like you think it is. Completely understand if you want to let it idle for 20-30 seconds after pushing the car hard (I always do after an autocross run) but for just driving around normal on the streets, completely unnecessary. But you do you I guess.The Choice is completely yours, I prefer to let my turbos have a "cool down" period. I have done this for over 17 years and it has never done any damage to any of my engines.
Everyone has there own will preference and own way of doing things this is just mine.
