    It is not needed at all. The turbo is water/coolant and oil cooled. As long as you arent hitting full boost going into your driveway and shutting the car off you should have no problems.

    I generally take the last 4-5 mins of my commute rather easy to let things cool down a bit.

    If it was needed every stock 02-07 wrx with over 10k miles would have blown turbos by now.

    Or you could save the money...save wear and tear...save install time...and save addding un-needed electronics to an already highly electronic vehicle.

    To each their own.

    dont need it unless you have to have it. i have an FP green thats just oil cooled so i run one, yet i only have it set for 30 seconds and i just drive easy for 5 minutes when i know im going to be somewhere. i could probably not even run one and be ok.
