Here is a good place to start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo

Now- I'm not familiar on the specifics on the 1.8T, but you really don't need a turbo timer on the 2.0fsi.

If you want your turbo to last longer: a cool down of 30 seconds to 2 minutes, before shutting the motor off. Watch your engine oil levels and make sure there is always adequate oil.

alright so if im understanding this right then all a turbo timer is for is to keep the engine running for a little bit after your done driving so that the turbo can cool down for a bit. am i correct? thats all it does?

alright well thats pretty simple. are they any hard to install? i have electrical background, i am an mobile install tech at best buy. and also i reading somewhere on the forums say that 1.8s arent good to put blow off valves on, or somthing like that. or they need diverter valves instead? i dunno, i dunno, if anyone can explaine that too me then that would be great.

collins,
if you want to really learn (not saying that people here do not know. people here know a lot more than me and i work on turbo/supercharged vehicles) even in the army we have turbos and superchargers, but if you reeally want the specs and what it does. use google. i know people here have helped me out a lot with my vehicle. and i started using google also. but if it is something that i can not understand than i ask here too. but it depends how much you want to learn too. this is the best site on the net for GTIs. so have fun. sorry if this affended anyone.

here is a suggestion for everyone. one of my friends got me on this and i have not stopped sence he told me about it. there is a magazine called EUROPEAN CAR. they always have information on the GTIs. for the month of september 2008 the cover cars were a 2008 VWGTI and a 1976 VW GOLF GTI. The first GTI. also that is where i found the KO4 turbo kit for the 2.0t fsi. so that is a really great magazine to read. pluse they have lots of other stuff like "HOU TO" projects. just wanted every one to know. if you know great if you did not know and you even look at it than great. but i am telling you it is really worth it to get it.

thanks V/R
