Well I thought your install looked very nice. Thanks for all the pics. Will the pocket still close w/ the TT in there?

I admit some confusion here-

Personally, I'm not a timer guy, I'm a cool down the last mile or so person, or just idle for a minute or two, depending.

I understand the K04 we use to be oil cooled, and that it's best to not drive like hell then shut down to not coke the oil in the turbo.

I understand that is the goal of a TT- to automate the cool down/ shut down process.

Although I do this myself, and would not purchase a TT, why is it being called a "Not Needed" mod when the need to cool the oil is still there?

For the OP-
Nice pics and not a half bad write up- thanks for the time & effort.

Well she's oil and water cooled. And like you said, about all it takes is a minute or so of taking it easy before you park it. Or, if you've been roughing it up immediately before you park, 30 seconds of idle time.

I can't think of a single time where I got done beating on the car and didn't have 30+ seconds without being in boost before turning the car off. Even drag racing you have to drive down the return road after making a pass before you can stop and turn the car off.

Wow, my driving habits must be way different than all of yours. Usually, I'll be blasting down the highway WOT from 1st to 5th; when I'm at about 5500 on the tachometer, about to shift into 6th, I just shut the car off.

Saves the synchros on 6th AND makes me look totally bad ass.

Don't fret over these guys, Dood. Your car, you're mods. Very clean install. Nice write up, too. Although, there is always a free alternative to cooling down the turbo before shut-off. I'm always on the run and never sit in my car for a minute for the cool down. Instead, when I getting closer to where I'm going I lay off the boost and let here do her thing.

Why is everyone beating up on this guy? Sure it's not the most necessary mod but it can't hurt and it's a very clean install. I'm a fan.

Plus I know there have been times where I've been late for something (Work, Class Cocaine smuggling... etc) and I've drove hard and didn't really give the egine anytime to cool down. I hate doing that.

I definitely don't want to create the impression that I'm beating up on the guy. It's his car, for sure. And yeah, it's a nice install. But, I was just trying to reinforce to anybody who may not already know, that it's not a necessary mod. Perhaps not even worthwhile. But, opinions are like assholes.
