I was looking around online and saw that some R owners are giving good reviews to the Blitz Dual T/T/DC II. I was just wondering if anyone else was using something different. <p>Also what is a good location for the turbo timer?

Well unless you need help remembering to cool your car down it's a waste of money and it looks too ricy for the "R".

Re: Which Turbo timer are people using??? (moravecb)

It figures out how long the car should run after driving. On a trip to the store (3 blocks from my house) if I take it easy the minimum cool down I have set is 30 sec. If I get on her, that same 3 block trip with high boost levels can go as high as 1.25 minutes after the car is turned off. Also the unit is a boost gauge, that part of it is a bonus imo. To boot it is the size of a 5 stick pack of gum. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> I really like this product. Rick

but you could do that on your own, I guess it depends on what's on your mind or how busy with other things you are.

Re: Which Turbo timer are people using??? (moravecb)

Since I have a MT and the parking brake won't hold the car on a grade, I can't walk away from the car while it is still running with the turbo timer, so I monitor EGT, which is a good indication of the turbo temperature.<p><IMG SRC="http://atn.tv/Billy/rotot/ZeitronixDisplay%20(Small).JPG" BORDER="0"><br>This is the peak after a track event<p>Billy
