    its been talked about before... these cars do not really need a tt. Since the turbo is water cooled water still circulates for a minute or two after you shut the car down, therefore cooling the turbo. Really, the most you ever need to let this car run after driving really hard is about 30 seconds. So its up to you, (i have one, its a cool effect)
    dude one time i tried to put the trailer bully into the coiler, and I got all messed up

    It's like extra insurance, you don't need it but it doesn't hurt to have it

    I would get one. Last thing you want is a seized turbo or cracked oil passage.
    02 WRX - XS Power header/UP/TBE, XS Power FMIC, MBC@15psi, Ported TD04L, Perrin shortram, Alum Radiator - 13.35@101
    05 Mini Cooper S - Bone stock
    95 Mustang GT conv. (Work In Progress) - BBK LT headers & h-pipe, dumped Flowmasters, Kirban AFPR, BBK subframe braces, 6-point rollcage, FMS springs, 70/30 struts, 50/50 shocks, K&N intake

    Not needed unless you can use the TT as a dual purpose boost gauge like the Blitz Dual DC TT has IMHO. There are reasons why the turbos on stock WRX's have coolant lines bolted up to them.
