As the seasons are now changing and we're starting to wear the old jeans and jackets more often because of the cold...don't forget to let your engine warm up to a good operating temperature before taking your baby out for a drive. DO NOT go into boost when the car is cold...this can cause some serious problems. With all the boosted ISs on the road now, this winter will certainly be interesting to see who lasts until the spring time! Be safe and take it easy on you cars! :D

Just curious, like what??
As long as you let the car warm up to the "proper operating temp," you should be fine, correct?

did something bad happen? I sure hope not. i know turbo's like warm oil(+60c) and the engine should only be stressed when at temp.

To me? No...my car is sitting pretty in its garage. :D I'm just stressing this for all the other turbo owners out there...there are so many, we should all be careful.
