And why exactly would you want to shut your turbo down?

That's a humdinger of a first post

Turbos can't be shut off as they're mechanical. There isnt going to any mod or turbo that has a switch to shut them off.

Exhaust gasses expelled from the engine turn the turbo's turbine on the "hot" side. From there is a shaft that is directly connected to the "cold" side turbine wheel which pulls fresh air from your intake.

Turn the engine on, the turbo spools and is "on". Turn the engine off, the turbo can be heard winding down to a stop (turbo "off").

Theoretically you could rig the wastegate to be open the whole time causing the turbo to "turn off" in a sense. but what that could cause is beyond anything i would even consider trying

I am just trying to find truth behind this hole subject I have heard so many diffrent thing about 6.0 having the waste gate and being able to run a switch. I was just wondering how it was done and if there was truth behind it.
