Hello<p>As some of you may know I have a T5 C70 and I am just wondering if its ok to rev the car while it is standstill. Why on earth would I want to do such a thing? Basically I've had enough of little sh*ts in their dweeb Focus STs revving at me at the lights. I've never revved back because I thought it was unhealthy to the turbo, especially when its cold.<p>What do you guys think? Safe to do... or just rise above it and keep your turbo healthy.

Be easy with it until it's up to operating temp. I have even gone as far as counting the lines on the temp gauge on my c70. 4 lines or so below red means I can play. I've had the same prob with civics in my area, do an est downpipe n exhaust and u can scare that lil focus away
