    Any one have any experience with an o HKS Turbo Timer Type-1?

    Hi, I am new to the forum.
    I ordered my '07 WRX 3 months ago and they are finally giving it to me next week. I am thinking about adding a turbo timer to my WRX and just wanted to know if anyone has any information about turbo timers in general and specifically about this HKS model.
    Thanks a lot.

    ^^ This is the place to post / read of this. A WRX / STi does not need a turbo timer.

    They said in that forum that only technical discussion should be made and turbo timers should not be discussed there.
    Thanks anyway.

    Truth. The design of the water / oil cooled turbo needs no turbo timer to keep its cool. Really.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback 04.SPT.WRX. Yeah the least mods I make to my car the best, Subar here in Peru is very special about voiding warranty.
    I understand that the timer is not necesary for the turbo on the WRX but do you think it might adversely affect the car?

    Trust me (and 99% of our fine community) a turbo timer is a total waste of money.

    Take your money and get real tires. That will be $ well spent.
