My bro just picked up an 2005 Legacy GT Limited, I was wondering if anyone knows if a WRX turbo timer will work. He wants a Blitz dual TT like I have in my rex, that is also a boost guage.:D

I'm pretty sure the water/oil cooled turbos that subaru's use keep pumping even after the engine is shut off until it is cool, at least my car does anyway.

Certainly true of the WRX; don't know about the Legacy GT. I would check to make sure you even need one before laying out the cash...

Did you mean you can't use the harness? I think more then anything he wants a digital boost guage and the Turbo Timer is a plus.

I'm pretty sure that the Legacy turbo uses the same technology as the WRX/STi/Baja turbo. It uses the expansion/contraction properties of warming/cooling fluids to keep fluid running through the turbo even after you've shut off the motor. New Subaru turbos don't require timers.

I bet you'd be really pissed if you left the car running on a timer and someone stole it while it was running.

thats why you have the TT wired so it automatically kicks off under certain conditions (hood/door opening, ebrake down, brake pedal, clutch)

i suppose you could do that...but the fact remains, you don't NEED one. buy a downpipe instead.

a boost gauge is much more useful than a downpipe as a first mod. for 120 or so you get a digital boost gauge with p/h/w that just happens to be a turbo timer as well. oem boost gauges are what, 160? 180? the only analog boost gauge that is comparable is the greddy p/h/w and even that is more expensive.

lastly, the blitz dtt dc is ACCURATE. people keep testing it when they dyno, against much more expensive boost monitoring means and each time the blitz comes out REALLY accurate (to within 0.8% of actual value is the last number i heard). that's a damn good value.
