    Universal turbo timer installation

    I recently purchased turbo timer off ebay and i searched and searched onother threads and i couldnt find anything. It came with the wiring harness which consists of a red,blue,adn yellow wire which are connected to a 3 prong adapter. there are also two other wires that are in the same bundle of wires but DO NOT connect the 3 prong adapter, they are a black wire and a brown wire. does anyone have the slightest clue where i connect these to??? And once again i did utilize the search bar on the home page and it was of no use to me.
    God created turbo lag to give V-8's a chance

    still having problems with this?

    If so, I would think the black wire is ground, brown possibly parking brake wire.

    The harness should have 3 connectors, one to male and female of ignition connector, and one to the turbo timer itself. If the male and female ends that connect to the ignition connectors are 3 prong, then it won't work (unless you hardwire it which is what I did since I was given another car's harness).

    It would help if you gave the brand of the turbo timer.

    honestly, the internet is your friend.

    Hook up the harness to your turbo timer (it should be the only connector with same male/female ends). Next, take off your kick panel and take apart ignition connectors, plug the harness into that. Put black/ground wire onto a metal surface w/out paint. Parking brake just splice into the wire coming directly off of the sensor.

    A turbo timer is just a waste of fuel on our cars. The turbo is cooled properly, even with the engine off. Don't believe me, look it up.
