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.
