We have a lot of idiots that work for us and they shut down hot equipment all the time. They don't even wait for the engine to idle down. So it going from hot and WOT to off and we're not having turbo issues.

No he said because it is water cooled you don't have to let it cool down at all, there's no proof to support that as fact. It certainly doesn't hurt to let shit cool down a little regardless if it's water cooled or not, I think it's safe to say everyone agrees 400* egt and below is a safe number.

ah i got ya. there is proof out there a water cooled turbo will put up to abuse much longer than a strictly oil supplied one but i have not seen where it says it will stop oil cooking issues. lessen the chance im sure though

Warm up is usually a few minutes and easy throttle unless it's really cold

But anymore she sits in the garage which is normally 20-30 degrees warmer than the exterior temp anyways.

Cool down time is switching from drive to park... Same for warm up time. That's one of them LBZ privileges

I don't bother, whenever I'm at my destination, I turn it off. Engineering, metallurgy and oils have come a long ways in the last 20 years, it'll be fine. Plus, I find it weird to allow a vehicle to dictate how long I stay in it, before turning it off or wasting $$ idling it.

Lol Let's see properly taking care of a vehical and posibly burning a fraction of a cent of fuel vs a $2500 turbo plus install. Yep you better not let your vehicle dictate anything to you. Heck why even change the oil and filters.
