    Most modern turbos don't need a long cool down time like the old ones did.

    If your turbo is oil and water cooled you will not need a turbo timer unless it gives you a warm fuzzy. If it's just oil cooled a timer may not be a bad idea, or just give it some idle time and no hard running before shut down.

    i'm pretty sure it'll come with instructions and if you could pull off the turbo it won't be a challenge but i'd love to see some pics:drool:

    Its easy you just tie it into the ignition, just get a basic wiring schematic and it shouldnt give you much trouble. I usually run a seperate relay to feed power into the circuit.
