    Red face Alarm not working with Turbo Timer

    Hey folks, yes another new guy. I'm definitely not new to the import scene tho. anyways, I just got a Clifford G5 Intelliguard 770 installed on my 03 WRX Wagon. The installer/sales guy told me the alarm would work perfectly with my existing turbo timer. so i agree to go with the G5 instead of the Viper 3002 i origignally intended on installing. 8 hours later, the alarm is in and he tells me the anti car jack feature won't work and will not kill the car due to the way the turbo timer is wired to the ignition. fine. okay that sucks, but to add to my disappointment, i have to wait until the timer has shut off the car before i can arm my alarm. i'm going out of town for a couple weeks and leaving the car at a friends house on the street, so i need the alarm for at least that long. any advice? i've been had.

    What I don't understand is why you have the turbo timer on in the first place. For one thing, you have a drop fed turbo with a reserve tank on TOP of the engine that is specifically designed to feed coolant into the turbo after the engine has shut off. Turbo timers are a big waste of time and money on Subaru's.

    You can't have one feature that keeps the engine from running while you have another that's trying to KEEP the engine running.

    If I were you, I'd remove the turbo timer, and just deal with sitting in the car for a few seconds longer when you park before you turn it off. Who's really in that big of a rush anyways?

    so you're saying the setup on the WRX is that good to where turbo timers wont help prolong the life of the turbo?

    It's designed specifically for that purpose. The extra coolant tank mounted near the turbo is made specifically to keep the temps down in the turbo after you shut off the car, so yes, that's exactly what I'm saying.

    If you're that paranoid about it, just sit in the car for about 15 seconds after parking.
