    I shouldn't bother. Its not good for your car to be sat idling. The turbo may get cooler, but everything else will get hotter. Just take it easy for the last mile or so of your journey.

    Yea its just as the instructions say.

    I fitted mine in about an hour.

    And those that say drive off the turbo for the last bit of your journey havnt owned a Z20LET as its impossible drive off turbo

    And ideling for 2 minutes before it switches off will be fine. You would be sat at a set of traffic lights longer

    Sorry if my post was unhelpful. I've no experience of fitting a turbo timer. Only advice I would give is to take your time and use a soldering iron and heat shrink wherever posible.

    Its not a case of driving off boost, just dont scream the nuts off it.

    K3FUS, please enlighten me.

    When I fitted mine, all I did was run the wire under the centre console and strip a bit of wire off the connector you can see when you pull the handbrake boot back.

    It isn't hard, just a bit awkward.

    Just pull up the bit under the handbrake handle and then the boot just slips off. I would definitely fit it, firstly as a safety measure and secondly so that if you don't want the timer to work (short journey, etc.) you can just drop the handbrake to switch the timer off.

    What make is it mate? Mine's a Blitz DUAL FATT and has a built in boost gauge, overboost warning, lap timer, manual and automatic modes (although don't know how it works - japanese instructions!) too.

    Would recommend one to anyone I know - I live out in the sticks now and am normally hammering down one of my favourite roads before turning into my drive, so I actually do need one!
