Turbo Timers

After driving the 535 is it going to be necessary to spool down the turbo in the car. Or just turn the car off.

The car will be fine assuming you don't go from redline to off within 30 seconds or so. Just a couple minute easy drive through a residential neighborhood to get home is enough to cool things down. If you are really paranoid (or not going home), drive slowly around for 2 minutes or so and it'll be fine.

Good advice and something I practice as a matter of course, better to cruise around slowly rather than sit idling on the driveway, as you don't get airflow through the engine compartment.
