    Why were you taking pictures, starting a new thread, uploading to an image hosting website, and posting to an online forum while you were driving?

    Yup, battery voltage, and it's fine as is. Though I wouldn't install that to get a voltage meter in my car... Voltage is easy enough to check when an electrical problem shows.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    no need for a turbo timer on our cars. Remove it and start poking around to see what the p.o. has done to it.
    Why exactly is there no need for turbo timers on our cars? Doesn't it help the turbo cool off in time if you were just hotrodding it so it doesn't heatsoak?

    The previous own on my 04 rex installed a turbo timer on my car as well. All I did was push the power button to shut it off so it won't turn back on.

    n00b with a question

    The coolant and oil cools it down. Just don't pull Into your parking space at 6k rpms either.

    Heat soak is not the right word, more like overheat. But that won't happen because the turbo is water cooled after the engine is shut off.

    "IHI's position regarding this is that it is not necessary to perform a "cool down/idling" procedure, as was recommended with past turbo models. Our current 2.0L turbo engine has a far greater cooling capacity and, coupled with technology advances, makes this practice no longer necessary. This explains why information about cool down is not included in the 2002MY Impreza Owner's Manual.

    The heat contained in the turbo charger will begin to vaporize the coolant at the turbo charger after the engine is stopped. This hot vapor will then enter the coolant reservoir tank which is the highest point of the coolant system. At the same time the vapor exits the turbo charger, coolant supplied from the right bank cylinder head flows into the turbo. This action cools the turbo charger down. This process will continue until the vaporizing action in the turbo charger has stopped or cooled down."
