Re: turbo cooldown time

<< Turbo care: Mooney turbo aircraft manual INSISTS you run the engine at a
little above idle for MIN 2 minutes before shut down. Helps equalize the
temperatures in and around the turbocharger, prevents shutting off
turbocharger and heat-soaking all those expensive seals and the center
bearing - the idle time gives the oil a little time to draw off some of the
heat from those delicate, expensive parts. >>
Aviation and "auto"mation, this is a good idea... in and around is key....
Why most exhaust manifolds crack on audis too.... Expensive heat sink....
