Default water cooling a turbo

Okay so im looking on the web and i come accross a site that says that using the water cool ports for the 14b turbo is optional... it said that using them will extend the life of the turbo and prevent coking of oil... but if i dont use them it wont hurt... any input?

Why not just run them and change the oil a little?

Takes 8 feet of hose, a few fittings, and 5 minutes.


What are your oil temperatures if you DONT run them? Someone please tell me because I dont know.

Doesn't matter either way. No real reason to NOT do it.

Why not do it?

Takes $20 bucks and 10 minutes to install? I don't get why people just plug them up, if they want to keep their turbo for awhile.

Run the water lines, it's easy, and it increases the life of the turbo.

We have kits with full instructions, if you wanto to take the super easy route.

turbos get VERY hot... much hotter than the engine if you let them.

If you let the oil absorb ALL the heat, then it can get to a temperature where it will break down. The water is there to share in the heat absorption so the oil will not get as hot. I think that water has a better heat conductivity than oil, so it will actually help cool the turbo better. The only reason water is not used instead of oil is that it would all turn to steam and blow apart the coolant lines by itself

^^ and that being said, the coolant is actually cooling down the oil, not the turbo.

you are completely wrong lol if you catch the coolant before it gets to the head or right after it goes through the radiator it will be not THAT hot and will cool your turbo down. Your turbo spins at 60,000rpm+.. just imagine how hot it gets. Water cool the bitch!

Just intercept the lines going to the TB, or run them from the places the coolant goes to the tb if you have them plugged, very easy. I would say do it, theres no reason not to except lazyness haha, and it will reduce the life of your turbo in the end if it came water cooled. I mean its your call but I would do it if it were my turbo.
