    I believe you are correct, the turbo on the WRX is liquid cooled with it's own resevoir tank. The coolant is supposed to flow throught the turbo after shutdown by means of heat convection. There by removing the need for a turbo timer.

    If you really want to extend the life of yr turbo, you should ditch the turbo timer and just sit in yr car for 5-10 minutes after driving it with the motor running. With this extra time you can read a magazine, catch up on some zzzz's, or just reflect on how much longer yr turbo will last now that you've properly let it get all lubed up and such.


    For canigetanysicker, I think this is what yr looking for.
