not to change the subject, but can i stop wasting my life away. i think proper turbo warm up time should be important. if not some one plz correct me. i just don't want to spool the turbo w/o any oil in the berings.

Good news, everyone!
I bought my 1st WRX 5 months after the original post..
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.
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.
