Are any of you using accumulators or turbo timers and if so do you feel they are giving you increased longevity of your turbo? Accumulators are expensive and while I would like one cannot afford to shell out big bucks. Timers are cheap and I may go that route

generally as long as you give it some 'cool down' time you will be just fine..

water cooled CHRA FTW!

worst case scenario would be-
on expressway in hot weather then pull of into rest area and shut it down;
just don't do that...

just dont shut it off after beating on it hard.

let it idle a minute and it will cool itself.

I haven't noticed any of the projects on here or facebook groupsusing accumulators, but some people use turbo timers, usually cheap ones or homemade ones.

But honestly just some self-discipline in remembering not to shut it down immediately after stopping, duration depending on how hard you were using the car before stopping does the trick.

Many aftermarket remote start systems have a "turbo timer" capability and can be set up to idle your engine for a certain amount of time (5 minutes, for example) after you stop the car.
