    They would more than likely not insure you. Most won't. They don't understand what its for or about. I'm affraid your going to have to phone up and find out.

    I think the main problem with turbo timers (from a insurance company point of view) is that it can mean that the engine is left running while the car is unattended. This would void the theft part of your insurance at the very least.

    You could try and pull the 'valet parking system' has been installed routine. These are becoming standard fit to alot of high end cars. So they maybe more receptive to that than just stating its a turbo timer.
