Turbo timer install

What all would be involved in installing a turbo timer? It may not be as necessary as it was with old cars, but I want to be ABSOLUTELY safe.

About an hour's worth of work. Hook up the harness in the ignition, then run the wire to the e-brake. Mount the timer. If you use the O2 sensor wire, attach it. That's it.

You have to connect it to the ECU I think.

You only have to connect it to the ECU if you want it to read the O2 sensor and automatically set itself for how long to idle.

If I get one, I'd probably want it to set itself...I'm lazy and wouldn't know how long to leave it anyways.

Question ASP BOV

I got a 2004 WRX STi. I'm trying to instal a ASP BOV, but I'm not sure about the intercooler. Do I just take the old BOV out and instal the new one? or do I need to drain any kind of liquid out from the intercooler?


HELP?

Instructions that came with mine:
1. Remove cable from negative terminal of battery.
2. Pull vacuum hose (small hose) off BOV.
3. Loosen the bolts attaching the BOV to the intercooler (2 of them).
4. Detach air bypass hose (big hose going under intercooler) - at this point, you're able to completely pull out the stock BOV.
5. 34mm plug to stop up the air bypass hose.
6. Use stock bolts to attach BOV to intercooler.
7. Attach vacuum hose to BOV.

Mine had no problems after that...so good luck.

If you get the Blitz DCII it estimates a time based on how high the boost got and how long the car ran for or you canset a time yourself. No ECU connection required.

Wink Thanks

Thanks for the answere, but why do i need to block the by pass. Mine is a ASP BOV, it is a recycle BOV. Now if I block the by pass, is that going to effect my HP at all?

If it recirculates air, there's no need to plug the bypass hose.
