If you have been running the car hard, I would wait until both trans and engine temp are under 200 degrees and everything should be fine. Obviously this would vary a bit given ambient temperatures, but is a good general rule.

My car reaches 203~204 in Engine / Tranny Oil temps if left at Idle but then again ambient temps are crazy here even now. During Driving thought those temps drop below 200.

Hey Ian, I am curious to the reasoning behind why you say this. Can you please explain why?

Default cool down procedures and turbocharger cooling

You have to decide what "extremely high" means, but here is the procedure from page GTR-7 of OWNER'S MANUAL:
COOL DOWN
Cool down the vehicle to help extend the life of the vehicle if coolant temperatures are extremely high. Drive the vehicle at 37 to 50 MPH (60 to 80 km/h), in 5th or 6th gear for 2 to 3 miles (3 to 5 km) and then stop the engine.

As far as the question about turbo timers go, you can definitely make a case for one, but under normal day to day driving conditions, they should not be necessary, and I don't see the need for one if you follow the above procedures and observe the following precautions:
From page 5-26 of OWNER'S MANUAL:
TURBOCHARGER SYSTEM
The turbocharger system uses engine oil for lubrication and cooling of its rotating components. The turbocharger turbine turns at extremely high speeds and it can get very hot. It is essential to maintain a supply of oil flowing through the turbocharger system. Therefore, a sudden interruption of oil supply may cause a malfunction in the turbocharger. To ensure prolonged life and performance of the turbocharger, it is essential to perform the following maintenance procedure:
. Change your engine oil according to the recommended intervals shown in the separate Service and Maintenance Guide. Use only the recommended engine oil.
. If the engine had been operating at high engine speed for an extended period of time, let it idle for a few minutes prior to shutdown.
. Do not accelerate your engine to high engine speed immediately after start.

m-oath....what recirculation are you referring to? The recirculation fan may come on after the car is turned off, but I don't know of any coolant or fluid that is recirculated.
