<< Does anyone out there have an aux. electric coolant pump for the turbo
that runs after a hot shutdown? Is it really necessary for this pump
to be operational (mine is bypassed right now after the plastic
fitting broke)? After inspecting it I found it was frozen up anyway.
How long do you want your turbo to last? Do you always allow your car to
cool down after a run for 2-4 minutes before shutting it off? I didn't think
so. The old Chrysler/Dodge 400ES(?) turbos had that admonishment in their
owners manual, so as to prolong turbo life. Since real life ain't
theoretical, I'd recommend installing a new/used auxiliary pump. But that's
JMHO YMMV (pun intended).
