NOT trying to be a d*ck, but I think you just answered
you're own question.  You said the turbo dumps heat
into the water.  How can you have a cherry red turbo
and normal water temps?   Cause the water looses the
heat to every other part it comes in contact with.
Plus it has a hugh heat sink capability.  The only
time I ever saw high water temps was a direct result
of the AC condenser.
