This simple, often overlooked electronic device is a true asset to any turbocharged vehicle. The turbo timer is designed to keep a turbo engine running for a pre-designated period of time in order to properly allow for engine and turbocharger cool down in an effort to prevent premature turbo destruction. A turbo timer can be installed on naturally aspirated cars that have been converted to turbo and also factory turbocharged vehicles. Many turbo timer manufacturers will offer a plug and play wiring harness option for easier install on factory force inducted vehicles. Allowing for adequate engine idle time will help to dissipate hot gases away from the turbo housings and will circulate engine oil and coolant (if your turbo is so equipped) through the cartridge to prevent “cooking the fluids” in the housing if the vehicle was shut off immediately. Most damage occurs to a turbo if it has been building boost just prior to the engine being shut down. TurboKits.com has turbo timers from Greddy, HKS, Blitz, and Stri, just to name a few!
