    HKS turbo timer type 0 not working

    I put in a hks turbo timer type 0 in my 06 wrx today using the Hks harness. The timer turns on and shows the volts just fine but when I turn the car off it just turns off and same with the car. What did I do wrong or is the timer broken? Please help.

    I hate to be the one to say this but a turbo timer will not benefit you what so ever. You have a car with oil and water cooled turbocharger and the cool down method is not necessary due to that.

    What year did they switch to the water cooled turbo? And well do you have any idea about the timer?

    All wrx and sti's are watercooled and oil cooled...so no switching. If you were oil cooled only like most turbo setups on non factory turbocharged cars then a turbo timer is a benefit to prevent oil coking in the center section.

    No i cant help on the hookup but i would suggest selling it. You will be just wasting your gas having it sit there.

    Hey I was also wondering about my clutch. It's very firm and short. Is that just how they are or is it aftermarket or going bad?
