    You don't have to wait for it to cool if you just drive carefully for the last couple of miles.

    Might be worth while nipping along to Calder Racing Developments and see if they can help you, only just along the road from you.

    i was enquiring at source sound today (http://sourcecars.com/index_new.html) and asked about turbo timers as i heard it's not easy with the immob on the vec, so he suggested fitting a clifford alarm/immob system and for another £79 he can fit a turbo timer to mine, fed up with sitting in car for a minute even if i drive steady i still wait a min before turning it off as im paranoid that it's going to start smoking again...

    i have heard it invalidates your insurance though as the car is left running without a key (i know the car is locked and cant be stolen ect ect but insurance companies will do anything to avoid paying out so make sure you inform them before you go ahead!!
