    Turbo after cooling?

    Ive heard that Subarus have this system where after u shut off the car it water-cools the turbo, eliminating the need for a turbo timer...I just wanted to know if that's true and if mine has it.
    It's a 2008 WRX
    Does anyone know?

    Is it stock? Then yes, you have it. More specifically, it is what the secondary resevoir up near the turbocharger is for.

    Now wait a minute.....you guys said every car since the 90s has a coolant reservoir for the turbo, but then UEDan says that a 2011 Subaru NEEDS a Turbo Timer?? I'm confused.
