Only time harm will be done is if on a heavily modified FI application where you do several runs and shut the car off immediately. Turbo damage could be a probable consequence.
Agreed, although u don't need several runs before shut down to need a cool down. These cars hate gridlock traffic esp in hot weather.
Factory FI twins with small snails is way different than a large single too.
