Turbo Timer?

Does anyone run turbo timers on these cars? I have not seen it mentioned.

If not, why not?

If So, Why?

Thanks

these modern cars dont need turbo timer. water pump is electric and if ecu thinks that its too hot after engine shutdown it activates water pump for some time to let components cool down.

This ^

However, after spirited driving, I give the car time to reach normal operating temp and idle for a min or so after parking before killing the engine. You don't want oil to stop circulation in a super hot turbo.
