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?

Actually a waste of money and detrimental mod for a WRX.

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

Lol totally trying to justify it :tongue: Honestly was bored and was a gift from my bro who used to race dsm's had a 9 sec talon years ago .

But yes totally un-neccisary on our cars
It's ok...a turbo timer was the first thing I bought after I got my wrx. Then I found this forum lol!
