    How long do you let the turbo cool down after driving?

    I've gotten into the habit of letting my car idle for about a minute before shutting it off to let things cool down. Is this really necessary with our cars?

    Engine rebuild?

    A friend of my dads has an 03 golf auto with 90k miles on it and a broken timing belt. About how much would it cost for an engine rebuild or a new engine for it? He's offering to sell it for about 4 grand and I'm thinking about picking it up and repairing it. Would it be worth it?

    I put standyne in my tank for the first time.

    I added an 8oz bottle of standyne for the first time today when I filled up. Immediately after I noticed that my car is smoking more than normal under heavy load. Is this just telling me that the standyne is doing its job or do I have a problem? I also noticed that the engine makes sort of a...
