    Turbo Timer idling time

    How long do your guys turbo timers idle for. I just got the blitz fatt II and when i leave it on the first setting it idles the car for about a min and a half after only 5 mins of driving. This seems like its a lot to me but maybe im wrong. Any opinions or observations would be helpful.

    The WRX has a cooled Turbo, you do NOT need a turbo timer for any reason. Sell it and buy a Cobb AP or something useful.

    if u took time to look at my sig you would notice stage 4 numbers. Now im pretty sure that you need some sort of tuning to get those numbers. #1 I have an accessport, #2 I dont have a stock turbo, #3 I'm aware that its oil lubricated, and coolant cooled, This still means there is oil going through it therefore its not doing nothing.

    What turbo do you have? Is it an IHI? if it is then it is Oil and Water cooled and does NOT need a turbo timer.

    i think u contradict urself. as far as i know a turbo timer is used to cool down the turbo and the oil. You said that the turbo is both oil and water cooled if its an ihi (i have a vf34) therefore i would need a turbo timer. Im pretty sure ihi's are water cooled oil lubricated though. The idea that there is oil going through my turbo at all makes me not want to just shut my car off after a hard run. Thats why i bought it

    I have a VF34 as well. All IHI turbos are Water cooled and do NOT need a turbo timer. Just spend 2 min searching "turbo timer" and you will see that no one uses them unless it is ONLY oil cooled.

    They are wasting money.

    Do not use a turbo timer on a stock or IHI water cooled turbo:

    A turbo timer isn't needed, but couldn't hurt.

    We have a surge tank above the turbo that helps cool the turbo down after shutdown. Naturally, after a spirited run, cooling the oil down to normal temps could possibly help to prevent oil coking.

    NO we do not need a TT for a oil and water cooled application.

    YES I have one!


    It's about piece of mind, I just like the fact that I have the car cool down after driving. It might not be needed but it's just for me to sleep better at night. I also use it to keep an eye on volts plus I use the h setting so it auotmatically adds or subtracts time to the end cool down.
