They are nice to have but with the push start and proximity key not sure how we can put one in. I have had one before on another car before and was nice. What I do now is i wait in the car for a few extra minutes if I was boosting hard to let it cool down.

Good thought
But there is literally no reason to use a turbo timer for the forte
Your better off spending your money elsewhere !!

Why not? I'm not being argumentative, just want to know why you think that.

I'll admit I'd not given a TT a second though on the forte. I did have a TT on my Impreza, but it was on the car when I purchased it. I did use it, but to be honest, the last couple of miles of driving home were on normal city streets, so I considered that to be enough to get things cooled down a bit when I'd come back from a spirited drive, and mainly just turned the TT off when I got out of the car.

i figure if you just make it a routine to have common sense to let the car cool down alittle before you turn it off...

i usually drive down my street in 6th gear to keep the RPM's as low as possible and then when i get into my garage, i let my car idle for maybe 30seconds or so while i turn off my bluetooth and mobile data on my phone then turn the wifi on for my phone... then turn the car off...

i havent really driven my car hard though...

The turbo is water and oil cooled
These systems nowadays are very efficient and do a great job keeping everything to a regulated temperature
Even if you are out driving and beating the living shit out of the car, your not going to go do a pull and immediately go from 100+ to a dead stop and turn off the car, that just doesn't make sense. Just as hon hon said, after your done having your fun, in most cases you take it easy on the rest of the way to you destination. This really just happens naturally and you shouldn't have to think about it.
Take me for example. I am rarely ever not in boost wherever I am going, this car is simply just way to fucking fun to drive, especially because of the amount of money I have put into it. But no matter where I'm going or what I'm doing, there is always a point In time of that drive that it has o to cool down, it just naturally happens.

Thanks :) I didn't know they were water as well as oil cooled, learn something new every day. Also a good point about the current state of tech, my impreza was a '94 car, and I got it around 2000, so it was old then, so things have indeed moved on.
You mirror exactly what I used to do with my impreza, and also what I do with the Forte, just let it cool down normally after a drive. The same can be applied on track, as you can just do a slow in lap to cool things down, or leave her running in the pits.

When we bought our optima i saw one of the vendors also on here has a canbus module that adds remote start, turbo timer etc.

That being said, i had one on my old 300 and on my wrx. Ended up taking them off though. If I drive hard i would let them cool down before turning them off. But usually destinations are in the 30mph zones so they cool by the time I get there.

Also subaru uses a riser system where the coolant evaporates up and gets replaced by cooler coolant when turned off.

This is all just imho
