    Hi All

    I would like to know if I need a timer for my ute? I do mostly town driving, also a couple of times traveling around the coast and over the weekend towing a boat and also to goto the tip. I have been sitting for a minute when I have finished travelling I hope this is ok till I make up my mind in buying the timer.

    Thanks

    a turbo time will increase the life of the turbo but with modern cars it is an embuggerance . The turbo timer overrides central locking and inbuilt immobilisers so its rather complicated to wire up so you can run a turbo timer and have a locked car . You may as well sit and wait a minute before locking your car because with a turbo timer that's what your will have to do anyway unless its a old car.

    A turbo timer is also a theft risk as you only have to cut two wires and join them up and you have ignition circuit on . Bust the steering lock and your off.
