    skip the Turbo Timer, it's not needed. The turbo placement is designed to continue cooling even after the car is shut off. Don't believe me - search, it's been covered.

    Get a TBE catted if you need to, or unhindered by a cat if you don't.

    BTW - what year is your subie? Might want to do the uppipe if it's 02-05.
