The Apexi Auto Timer allows the vehicle to idle for a preset amount of time after the ignition key has been removed. In turbocharged vehicles this prevents hot oil in the engine from coking up in the lines. Hard driving can raise engine oil temperatures to dangerously high levels. Proper cool down is essential for a healthy turbo and engine.
The Apexi Turbo Timer consists of 2 parts, the display and the module assembly. The Display is very thin and allows for a versatile array of mounting positions. The module assembly can be tucked up underneath the dashboard.
The Apexi Auto Timer can automatically determine the necessary amount of after idling time. A Manual Mode allows the user to preset desired idling times from 0 sec.~10 minutes in 16 increments. By inputting O2 sensor voltage, the Timer can also display theoretical air fuel ratio. Since the Auto Timer uses the factory O2 sensor which is primarily designed for emissions, the readings may not be as accurate as racing air/fuel ratio monitors. The Timer can also display critical data such as O2 sensor voltage and Battery Voltage. To prevent potential theft while running, the handbrake safety feature shuts off the vehicle when the handbrake is released without the ignition key.
Turbo Timers are universal products and are not vehicle specific. This can be installed in ANY vehicle Turbo or N/A. If you do not want to splice this unit into your factory ignition, we recommend the HKS Harnesses for a easy and simple plug and play installation.
