No. Import your own 1995 Toyota Celica GT-FOUR. It comes from the factory with AWD, a manual gearbox, disk brakes all around, and uses the 3S-GTE engine which is turbocharged to over 230hp. It's won many rallies before it ended up getting caught in a scandal about its turbo restrictor, but it's truly the best car Toyota has ever, or probably will ever, make.

Swap it for a factory Celica GT 4 instead - stock turbo &AWD goodness, stunning looks, Toyota reliability and IMO it's a car thats only gonna go up in value, do despite the hefty price tag I doubt you'd lose any money on it.

Nonsense! There is no need to idle a MODERN turbocharged engine for 30 secs, or any amount of time, before you shut it off! Why? Because (1) most contemporary turbos are watercooled so the bearing section (where the oil goes through) never gets too hot for the oil to coke. (2) Just about every car since the late-90s have an after-run water circulation pump. Hence, when the engine is off, the ECU continues to run a flow of coolant through the turbos for up to a few minutes. If necessary, the electric radiator fan(s) will stay on for a while too! - The need to idle turbocharged engines, like 3000 mile oil changes, is dinosaur advice!!!

Changing oil every 5-7mil is excessive and pointless. Just follow what it recommended by manufacturer. They know better.

My car doesn't have a turbo but I let the engine run for maybe 15 seconds before turning it off after a drive anyway.

I have an 02 Subaru Impreza Wrx with about 30k on rebuilt JDM ej205. I was told to put a synthetic blend in it. Should I be running full synthetic oil instead? Also, what brand is the best for these old turbocharged Subies?

Ok if anyone is wondering Scotty should have worded the gas mileage fact better. What he could have said is “a smaller turbo charged engine making 300 hp will get better gas mileage than a bigger engine making the same hp”
Mohammad was illiterate
Whatever car am driving I only turn the key and let the computer take care of the startup sequence for throttle and let it idle for a minute or two while I get stuff in the car etc, idle it out the driveway and take off easy, why hammer your car when it's cold that's just idiotic.

Scotty, is it a must to cool down a modern turbocharged car after some hard driving? I'm reading alot of mixed opinions on this. How long if so? And usually I'll do some light driving before I turn her off, is that ok to do?

Many of those things apply to non-turbo engines also. It all comes down to: properly maintain your engine, and drive moderately and it should last a long time.

I have a 2016 Jetta TSI 1.4L S model. It has a 5 speed Manual and runs great. I’m glad to say I abide by these rules. Also, I’ve made 46.3 miles per gallon on the interstate and average 33mpg on the back roads.

I honestly don't understand much about turbochargers but, if the engine is using the air from the engine, and the turbo sents it back to the engine, what air comes out of the exhaust, and how?

Ironically enough at 1:37, the speedo/tach in the upper left corner is from a Mazda RX8 - a car that you can safely rev to 4,000+ RPM as it warms up (especially if you premix with 2-stroke oil in the gas) but if you put a turbo on it then the engine will probably explode.

occasionally im lucky enough to drive my dads Saab 9-3 aero, when you start it up it idles high for about a minute before dropping just below 1000 where it normally is. my dad always said let it sit until the idle drops, is this manufactured into the car to help you remember to let it warm up, or why does this happen?

Its normal with petrol engines. When the engine is really cold theres more fuel injected because when you inject the normal amount of fuel the engine won't keep running

Re: Starting up, I just start my car and then get buckled in and whatever other messing about I have to do. Figure that gives the engine time to get ready, In a truck with an oil pressure gauge my method was wait for that to get a reading. We had a Subaru Outback XT 2.5T and it actually had a light on the temperature gauge that went off when it was warm enough and you could not even put it into "Sport Sharp" mode until that light went out.

If you drove your turbo hard on a german Autobahn, please cool it down longer than just 30 seconds :-) Personally I drive the last 2 kilometers before my exit with not more than 120kph, if I floored it before and I know I will turn off the engine soon after the exit e.g. just to get fuel. You can also use the exhaust gas temperature at the catalytic converter as an indicator. I don't turn of the egine, if it's hotter than 650°C. This may vary on other cars, but I noted this temperature for my Mazdaspeed 3 as a kind of "save", because it is also is reached on lower loads.

It’s over engineered part get rid of it !! It only makes you car unreliable Instead get a national aspirated engine powerful as you need.

Also another tip. Whether you are driving an AT or manual, be at least 2700-3000rpm before you floor it. Don't accelerate from like 1500rpm, you are flooding your engine and the turbo builds the boost much slower from slower rpm and you could end up with detonation from unburned fuel and there goes your entire engine and say goodbye to your car. Also if you are buying a turbocharged car, it requires much more TLC than an naturally aspirated. You have to keep an eye on everything and you have to change spark plugs much more frequently and be mindful what kind of fuel you are putting in. All require top-tier gas, Exxon, Shell, Sunaco, etc. Walmart's brandless fuel, Sam's Club etc.. or something like that will not do any good.

A turbo car has a massive peak torque already at mid RPMs - so no need to rev up your engines more than 3000-4500 EVER 😀 Don't drive it with maximum revs, at it won't fail ... As Scotty explained in another video, idling does not cool your car - you need to drive it rather at speed (let's say 30-60 mph) with low RPMs. And it's best to combine the turbo with an automatic transmission so that it shifts for you reliably to prevent high RPMs at all times.

Oil takes at least 10 - 15 min of driving to get upto temp!. 85 degrees. No need to idle that long after coming to a stop. Just drive low rpms for at least 2 miles before shutting of. Scotty c'mon lol
