There are always debates on turbo timers.  Our cars aren't wired for them so some are a hassle to install.  Not to mention all you really need is a minute or two to let the turbo cool down.

I for one rarely have the opportunity to push my car all the way to it's destination.  When I do, I just sit patiently and finish listening to a song or start a new one. A couple minutes can seem like an eternity, but for me it's not a big deal.

I don't believe anyone in our group has a timer.  I think we all use sun dials ;).

There are a number of members on clubb5.com that have them, here is a link to a decent thread:

If you do a search on CB5 for turbo timer (select the option to use all terms) you will find a bunch of threads.
