    its kinda pointless i know nothing about the item but i looked into installing 1

    leaving the car to tick over for 20sec after thrashing it and 20sec before booting it after start up does the same job

    You don't need a turbo timer on a diesel as they do not get as hot as a petrol turbo

    The idea behind the timer is oil pressure, old school thaught was you cut off the oil you cut off the lubrication and store pressure.

    The reality is if you let it idle for 5 / 10 seconds before you shut the ignition off the pressure will be low anyway.
