HKS have created the Industry's first turbo timer for the cars equipped with an push-start ignition system.
The HKS Push-Start Turbo Timer is different from conventional turbo timers as it controls the CPU managing body, enabling the turbo timer to do its job for the cars equipped a push start ignition system.
The average turbo rotates approximately at 160,000rpm and the exhaust air temperature sometimes reaches around 800oC under high-speed rotations. This alone shows that after-idling is a must for any sport/tuned car.
By allowing a turbocharged engine to idle, oil continues to pass through the turbocharger until it has cooled down to the point where oil "starvation" will not occur.
Please note that on some car models the factory security system will not be activated after the after-idling and the automatic door lock function is to lock the door by the HKS Push Start Turbo Timer, since the door cannot be locked by a key during the after-idling.
An optional 3-pin female HKS Turbo Timer harness can be purchased separately to allow an easy installation.
This product is not compatible with some vehicles. Refer to the application list before purchasing this product.
