Default Blitz Dual Turbo Timer, anyone?

Hi All,

This is my first post here and I think the GT forum is the best.

Anyone here have the Blitz Dual Turbo Timer installed? I was wondering how easy the install is, because Blitz doesn't have a harness for our cars so it has to be hard wired. This looks like a great value for around $125.00. You get both a Boost Gauge and Turbo Timer in a very compact package.

Here's a link to look at it.

On my other car ('93 RX-7) use of a turbo-timer will not allow the alarm system to arm. So, I took it off. Since I'm using synthetic oil, not a great need for it.

hey Welcome to the forum....
Rob, how do you plan on mounting up by the rear view??? The most creative install i've seen was an air-fuel gauge without the back casing mounted beneath the mirror in the rear view assembly<img src=icon_smile_shy.gif border=0 align=middle>

it was a guy with a vw 337 from vwvortex.com, absolutely amazing. You could see the lights from behind the mirror, so when it turned off it was like a ghost!!!

Put my Blitz Turbo Timer in on Tuesday. The instructions from Exhaust Depot were easy to read, understand and follow. Installation was fairly simple. Purchased the Black with the modified harness (extra $15.00) The hardest part was soldering the wires into the ignition harness. They send in line wire connectors that should work just fine. I soldered and insulated the wires on mine. 3 wires to the ignition switch connector, and 2 black ground wires, and 1 purple (safety) ground wire. (this wire can be connected to the emergency brake mechanism or grounded with the other 2 ground wires) which is what I did. This is a saftey wire, mostly for the Manual trans so that the timer will not keep the cruiser running without the emergency brake on. The modified harness that I purchased with the timer, gives you more flexibility as to where you can mount the computer box. (Longer wires). Only took about an hour total and would not have taken that long if I did not have to remove my Autometer 2 5/8 ultralite vac/boost and voltage gauges mounted on the steering column housing using chrome cups. I got the unit with the boost gauge specifically for the peak hold feature. It comes in handy for adjustment of the boost controller. The unit functions perfectly. I currently have it mounted to the dash under the vent by the driver side door with heavy duty Velcro (purchased at radio shack). This way if I decide to move it it will be simple to do and not tear up the dash at all. I like the idea of mounting it on the windshield above the mirror & may try that (it would look COOL there). I currently have it set to the Automatic mode. You can program in a base time between 1 & 60 seconds, and there are 2 auto modes. One adds 130 sec for every hr that the cruiser has been running (this is what I use), and the other adds 55 sec for every hour run. You can still lock the doors, and after the motor shuts off, the alarm flasher will start blinking and the alarm on mine does still work. I am very pleased with the purchase, it gives me peace of mind that I am doing all that I can to insure that the Turbo bearings will not be an issue down the road. BTW I plan on purchasing the 2 stage boost controller with switch that is sold by TurboX.

DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT.

Can you tell me how the readout looks when the pressure fluctuates. Digital can be tough to read sometimes.
Also, does it readout in psi, mmHg, bar?? [:I] Thanks.
