turbo timers are gimmicks and are for people who think it's cool to walk away from the car while its running, even for ball bearing turbo's its pointless

simply staying out of boost a minute or so before you turn the engine off is all thats needed.

I put almost 200K miles on a T3 turbo which was oil cooled only and ran 18 PSI of boost...... and non synthetic oil was always used due to being in the late 80's and early 90's when synthetic oil was new

Do not see why ball bearing turbo's would need it any more then a conventional turbo.
