    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Year : 2006

    Default Turbo timer and AFR reader, any good?

    I am thinking about buying one of these:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DIGITAL-TURBO-...item33644367db

    Has anybody else installed something similar to this..?

    I need the Air-Fuel ratio (AFR) readings but having the turbo timer can't hurt..

    its good stuff mate turbo timer u can set it how so when u take the key out car stays started to let it cool. an ive got an afr in one of the cars its good to know when ur car is going to lean out so u can get off the gas. it will offcourse show how rich it may be running when u are hammering it.

    Are they easy to fit or is this installation something that is best handed to somebody who knows what they are doing?

    It's been mentioned before Nige, but to my knowledge nobody has fitted a turbo timer. Mainly because of the CAN bus.

    There's no doubting there will be ways around it, somebody must have fitted one to a CAN car. Just need the knowledge of where to take feeds from. I imagine getting the AFR readings would be an easier task than the turbo timer.

    no heard anything back from them yet, but I suspect it will be a problem with the immobiliser anyway.. Only want a small AFR gauge anyway so will stick to looking for one of those..
