    What does your manual say about warming up the car?

    i just don't want to spool the turbo w/o any oil in the berings.
    I don't see how that would be possible if the motor is running. If so, this implies that the manual's wording is in there for other (valid) reasons.

    it was always my under standin that it took at least 30-60 sec. for the oil pump to get the oil to the berrings in the turbo

    Okay............your oil pressure is highest when it's cold. The minute you start the car the turbo has oil and plenty of it. The problem is if you immediately drive the car hard before the oil is "warmed up" the oil pressure will be too high for the turbo and will force oil out of the seals.

    As soon as the engine is running, it has plenty of oil to keep it lubricated. You should be more worried about your engine when it's cold than your turbo.

    I was just out of the army and 24 yrs old when this post died..


    daaaayyum.. holy revive the dead batman

    on topic, I let mine Idle down before I shut it off after running hard.. but for normal street driving I usually just roll up, park.. shut her down. Thats it. Water cooled turbo's are pretty stable on the cool down.

    as for warm up.. I turn the key, let Idle for a second or two and off I go. Just dont hammer on it till its up to op temp.

    Jeez, you guys act like subaru doesn't know what it's doing and is going to easily let everyone kill their turbos. Obviously they thought it out and you can stop worrying so much about them unless they were put in completely by yourself.

    Let's say you drive your car at a minimum twice a day. If you followed the erroneously recommended 90 second cool off time, as previously mentioned, that would cost you 3minutes/day.....or 21 minutes/week......or 18 hours/year....or 52 days over a 70 year life span!!!! Stop wasting your life waiting for your subie's snail to "cool down"!!!!!
    totally unrelated to post but i got curious... but as a student i spend 70% of my life waiting for the weekend

    I dunno, I'd let it cool...I didn't let mine a few times, and now the turbo has a noticeable whine that it didn't have before.

    The point was made 8 1/2 years ago to not worry about cooling your turbo unless you're driving hard and immediately stop and shut down your engine. Quit filling this thread with garbage, starting the process all over again. You most likely have other issues that are to blame for your turbo whinery.
