there is only one guy i know of that has one of these installed in his ng900, and it is a T-5, with a broken factory alarm. In other words unless u r planning on getting rid of the factory alarm and replacing it, then i wouldnt even bother trying.


Not to mention a turbo timer on our cars is pointless.

I believe because it is a relatively small turbo, and that it does not spool up unless you really give it some gas. Basically I think you would need to floor it, fly down the street and then shut the car off in order for the turbo timer to be useful. At least this is my understanding in my n00b state.

The turbos on our cars use a combination of water and oil cooling that pretty much eliminates any chance of coking, which is what turbo timers are meant to prevent.
