Re: Turbo Timer...

i personally see no point it them, others like them but i just go by the egt gauge. ive cruised around in 90 degree weather with the a/c running, only took like a min for the egts to get down to 300 once i parked.

Re: Turbo Timer...

they are very nice if u are out beating on it. then u go to jump out quick and dont have to sit there and wait for it to cool down. just turn the key off and lock the truck and walk away. i love mine!! i also have stg 2 and a bigger turbo so i mean the egts get up there sometimes.

Re: Turbo Timer...

Turbo timer is next to worthless, in my opinion. I have been wanting to uninstall mine for awhile. It literally takes minutes to cool the truck off to ~350-450 which I think is plenty safe to turn off the truck. The timer just wastes fuel...

Re: Turbo Timer...

Cooling off is important for longevity. In aircraft shutdown always involves letting temperatures stabilize. If you have been running hard it make sense. Casual driving, maybe not.

Re: Turbo Timer...

ive ran my truck hard and never had a problem with it cooling down, i know others that have more done to their trucks and dont have turbo timers. its a waste of time money and fuel.
