there should be a big grommet on the passenger side right behind the turbo. I dont know though because i never worked on an 08

Why would it not work on an '08 ? It says 04+ WRX.

by that logic it'll also work on an 2018 model too? Obviously there's a huge risk the listing hasn't been updated with the SUBSTANTIALLY different 08s...

You do know that the turbo timer is just a bling mod unless you have a bigger turbo that needs it. I would sell it a save your money towards something else. IMO

...yeah, like gas. You're gonna be wasting around 30 seconds (+/-) worth of gas every time you turn your car off. Also, don't forget that'll be the most expensive premium high octane stuff, and I think I saw gas prices jump up 20 cents in my area today !Cry!

yea i thought our turbos are water cooled.... so there would be NO NEED for a turbo timer.

I seem to remember some previous threads on this board that covered the extreme frustration with arming the alarm system (locking the car) and having the car running on a (turbo) timer. Search and destroy! !Laugh!

Mosc,

Yeah, I forgot, they changed all the harnesses and wiring in the 08's...... Shit.... Like that happened.

Is he referring to the Blitz? If you are, I didn't have a problem at all w/my 07. You all forget, TT's are used for more than just turning the car off.

Here is the place I got mine from.

Didn't forget that at all its just a personal preference. Just feel like the money could be spent on better things like handling mods.

I can explain :

1- in the winters I can go out, start it up and let it sit for however I want to warm it up.(instead of buying an automatic w/auto start)
2- Boost gauge is accurate as hell. <---cheaper than Defi's :poorme:
3- Timer for lap times among others
4- peak boost hold
5- You can set the warning to let you know if you boost spike.

I'm sure there is more I haven't used, tried.

I really like mine. Not that it gets as cold as it does elsewhere. ;)

does anyone know where they make the turbo timer harness for the 08 wrx at or if they even make them yet?

pzr2874 05-04-2008 09:30 AM

Best thing is to call the company 2 c what they say. I believe that is what the original question was. I don't see the harnesses changing.
