Re: TURBO TIMER? (Beaker)
Sounds like a good explanation to me. I have a turbo, just haven't installed it yet. It works basically on the same idea as a Remote Start, but reversed. If that makes any sense at all. He had it on the nose with the metaphor of cooking heroin (don't think I would have related it to that though, but clever) From what I understand, most turbo timers are adjustable with time. The shock to the turbo from just shutting it off even after just driving normal, let alone roughly, is bad. Shortens the life of the Turbo. Why they don't just come with the car in the first place, I don't know. I guess its so they can sell you parts after your warranty is out. Anyways, to make a long story short, you don't have to have a Turbo Timer in your car, it would just help. Another, FREE way of doing it, is when you drive the car, and you get to where ever you are going, sit in the car and let it run for a minute or two. Let it rest on its own. Thats what I am doing until I get mine installed.
