thought about doing that too, but it has to do with the mechanical clearances of the gears being driven at exact start up. Something about the metals changing slightly in size or something like that during very cold weather. Trannies are the same but we don't mash on it right away, the same way the blower spins the belt driven gear as it starts up and stays running. The unit needs to be warmed up good before even starting it.. the same with tvs units. The only unit I heard will be okay are the old school roots type ( m90 or magnacharger)

I would say the big thing would be the oil in the v2s because it has to come from the motor. As long as you dont start up a v3 and floor it, I dont think the oil being a little thicker would hurt it.
As far as the the impeller metal expanding, what do all the factory turbo cars do? They have almost the exact same design, and its not like the exhaust heats them up instantly...
That's still very interesting that you drive year round.. I'd actually be saving a ton of money if I were to keep my vortech and intercool it. I just have to worry about December and January, other months get warmer and warmer after.
turbos run on an impeller/compressor design but not like how the superchargers that require a gears that are belt driven.. those gears are the trouble makers when in cold weather, not the blades themselves necessarily, that's what I have been told anyways.. and it does make sense.. then again, they are talking about -25, which is horribly freezing anyways, not just "chilly out" lol
