    ok if you beg to differ then why are you asking the question?


    wrx turbos are liquid and oil cooled. theres no need to take any extra steps in order to properly cool it down.

    During your last mile of getting home or to your destination stay out of boost. Drive it easy. Park it and the car will create pressure and continue to push coolant through the turbo, which cools it while it is shut down, when the turbo is cooled down, the pressure stops.

    oh and for further backup [these are in refernce to turbo timers but apply to this]:

This eliminates the need to leave your car run at idle after driving. Its a more common tool for oil cooled turbos.

    When Subaru was asked, in a 2001 publication of Tech-Tips, they said there is no cool down procedure required. That is why you won't find one in the owners manual. If the manufacture does not provide one then how would you judge any procedure provided, to be "proper".
