Turbo Timer and Fuelling in the Tezza

Postby Sean » Thu May 03, 2007 11:49 pm

Have been listening to a few people talking about these on n/a cars and was wondering what people thought about fitting on of these to an RS200. I dont dog my car but still after a bit of a trip or driving it any little bit hard, I hate turning the engine straight off and usually give it a few mins to cool down. My question is does anybody have one of these fitted and is it hard, pros/cons?

Also on another point, since these are turned engines, is there any deal/need to have a look at the fuelling aspect of the car? I know with the likes of the more higher powered and turbo'd engines, people get them re-mapped? Please forgive the ignorance, just not up on the technical aspect of them and want to keep the engine sweet

Cheers in advance

Not really necessary on n/a but for peace of mind why not.

There is a few fuel controllers that can be got but the altezza has a knock sensor that stops damage from our poor fuel here compared to japan. The only thing is you are down on power compared to when it was running in japan but not much so nothing to worry about

To be honest they're pretty pointless on an NA car, the reason for them on a turbo car is because a turbo spins at up to 150,000 rpm when fully spooled & requires a constant oil feed which if you turn off the engine straight away ceases leaving the turbo still spinning at 150,000 rpm but without lubrication. So the point in a turbo timer is to allow the engine idle for half a minute or so just to allow the turbo slow down to a more reasonable speed before starving it of oil :)

A lad I work with was at a rolling road day recently and was talking to a couple of lads with Integra Type-R's. While talking to one of them he noticed a turbo timer in the Integra. So he asked:

"Why do you have a Turbo timer, it hasn't got a Turbo"

"Oh, Its to let the VTEC cool down after driving it hard"

:shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:
