Thanks for the response.  I agree, both these cars are just plain bad ass.

I also totally agree with the reasons why Porsche's cooling system has to come
on immediately.  A bunch of my Audi buddies and I were standing around the
engine bay of the 944 turbo and played the game:  Who will find the turbo
first?  It was actually very funny and some had a hard time finding it
immediately, due to the fact that the engineers plumbed the exhaust pipes all
the way to the intake side of the car for the turbo.  Anyway, thanks for your
thoughts as owner of both vehicles.  I just thought it was a great idea, and
you're right, it probably won't help any more than the Audi system currently

I happen to have both a '91 200TQ and a 944 Turbo so I can comment on some
of the differences. The 944T has the turbo buried on the top side of the
motor very close to the hood and other under hood items. This requires that
it run the turbo cooling pump more often to keep the under hood temperatures
under control.
On the '91 200TQ the turbo is mounted lower and has much better air flow
around it so additional cooling is less critical. This is why turbo failure
on the '91 200TQ is nearly non-existent. I can honestly say that the
design of the turbo system on the '91 200TQ is very impressive and is an
improvement over the 944T. I will concede that the options for the turbo
placement were very limited on the 944T so the engineers made the best
compromise that they could and then added cooling system enhancements to
You really shouldn't worry about adding additional run time to the turbo
after run pump since in my opinion it really isn't necessary based on the
established longevity of the current turbo arrangement.
You are correct that the 944T is a great car as is the '91 200TQ. I have
been blessed to be able to own both of these cars.
