    you can if you want to
    but the stock turbo cools itself very well even when the car is not on
    Just take it easy the last 5 min of your drive

    I've heard it's really not necessary for the stock turbo, but I'd like to hear some other opinions on this too. 'bout to be stage 2 myself and a friend has a blitz tt I could prob pick up for real cheap. Would it serve any significant purpose?

    Our turbos are oil & water cooled, therefore, as said before, the turbo will cool itself off after you turn off your vehicle. If you upgrade your turbo to something that is not oil & water cooled, then a TT would be a decent idea.

    If anything just take your time coming home ( last 2-3 mins of your drive ) and just let your car idle for a minute, its not even needed to let it sit but its a good habit to get into.
