Own a 1.8tsi was wondering if the yetis run a turbo timer? Can't hear any fans running on motor shut down, figured it was standard for all turbo powered cars perhaps I'm wrong?

Due to VAG's use of synthetic oils, it means that the oil does not coke due to very high temps, so even after the turbo stops the oil in the turbo is unaffected, so there is no need for one.

There is an additional cooling pump fitted to the ?back of the motor (P/N for the 1.8 is 1K0 965 561 J). After you turn the motor off it operates for approx 20-30 minutes and pumps coolant from the radiator through the turbo housing. This greatly reduces turbo heat soak and is a far superior solution to using a turbo timer. All modern turbo engines are going this way. It is quiet so you probably won't hear it working.
