is it necessary at all to buy a turbo timer for a WRX. ive been talking about it with a friend and he heard that it would help out his turbo in the long run, but ive heard that is totally unnecessary because subaru turbos are water cooled...whats the truth in this situation?
help me out

i agree to an extent, i did install this:

http://www.hksusa.com/products/more.asp?id=3592

The type 1, the turbo time is set to 0 so that part is not used yes that is useless but there are so many other options that this gives, mainly use it for time, 0-60 (only tried a few times) batt indicator and a/f ratio, i dont use its ability to keep the car running but other applications suit well, imo not a complete waste lol but all preferance
