im new to this, and i love it so far, i have a 2007 saturn sky RL, unfortunately its automatic, but when im running it, my turbo heats up pretty fast, and i was wondering if there are any after market mods i can do to help, i already have a cool air intake, and i was looking at an intercooler, but any sigestions?

hey mate, im new to this too first post Smile

Im studying turbochargers at tech now, how i was taught is to keep it simple first then go onto advanced Smile

it could be your turbo just needs more of a coolant flow? Or it could be your water pump or something in the engine which is not getting enough cooling flow throughout your system?

Check the basics of your engine first then if that appears all fine go onto more complicated stuff.


Hope that helps dude.
