    Best place to buy boost gauge and turbo timer?

    I've been looking around and have found a few but just thought I'd ask here first. I know technically you don't need a turbo timer but I end up sitting in the car anyway for a few minutes before I turn it off.

    Thanks,
    Jess

    +1 Very Happy with my ATI clock pod, and autometer gauges. Boost/Vac is best Mechanical but would go electrical for the rest.

    As far as turbo timer, I am getting a Compustar Remote starter which has a built in turbo timer function, and is the only manual trans compatible starter I have found. So at JSCspeed you can get an Apexi timer for $114 or a 3000ft range Compustar starter for $129, unless all that laptime function stuff on the TT is what you are looking for.

    A lot of people seem to like the Pro sport gauges. They are nice looking and failey inexpensive. I have the electronic boost gauge just not hooked up yet. It's been to cold outside.

    I recommend fastwrx.com. I just ordered a set of Prosport gauges from them (boost and oil pressure). I'm still waiting for the Autometer gauge pod to get here so I can put them in.

    look on ebay and you can find turbo timers for decent prices. I just got a blitz FATT DCIV turbo timer off ebay for like $80 shipped.

    i was told that we didn't need turbo timers on our cars cause the water pump is electrical and stays on till the turbo cools down after we turn the car off anyways.

    If you are sitting in the car, you don't need a turbo timer. The purpose of the turbo timer is so that you can turn the key off, get out - lock your car, and walk away.

    And yes, the WRX does not require a turbo timer, this has been covered, ad naseum, on this and other forums.

    BTW - welcome Save that money for a mod that counts, or put it towards an alarm with remote start - these can easily be configured and used as turbo timers - plus you will have the convenience of jumping into a cooled car in the summer and a warmed car in the winter.
