Blitz Dual Turbo Timer DC IV

Does anyone have this as a boost gauge? I want something slim that can hide inside the cig lighter compartment. The new BMS tuning gauge is nice but expensive, plus you need JB3. I've had a round boost gauge but it's too bulky. Can anyone recommending something similar to this size and price ($99)?

Complete waste of money for this car. You do not need a turbo timer for any modern turbo car.

My bad, I've been sick and it just didn't register. I checked the link and that unit actually has some cool display features besides the boost. I still think that the location you want to use is bad though. Any guages to be really useful/safe should be placed in your line of site. The cig lighter compartment would require you to take your eyes off the road to look down. If you can get a location higher on the dash it would be better.

My apologies for not reading through.

Installed that one on a tuned Passat as a boost gauge and worked very well. Actualy had it mounted on top of the steering wheel column using a small piece of flashing and two sided tape. Also installed it on a friend's WRX, very easy install

Why not the Rix-gauge?

The above one is too much trouble for no reason.

The purpose of a turbo timer is to let the engine run at idle for a while so the pumps can circulate coolant/oil around the turbo, letting it cool without baking the oil around it.

The 335 needs, and ***already has*** a turbo timer built in.
Fortunately, it doesn't need to run the engine to keep the oil/water flowing. The pump keeps working after engine shut down to cool the turbos, for some period of time.

Keep in mind, the upgraded ASR turbos disconnect the water lines.
So they would probably need an old-school turbo timer that keeps the engine running for a while after you 'turn it off'.

I have had blitz turbo timers, etc with all the other cool things they do. I do like it, but think its ricey. In my opionion, that would be fine for a wrx, but I don't know about a bmw e92.
