Your warranty cannot legally be "voided" in its entirety. However if there are any problems with the car that can be attributed to the aftermarket parts you installed, you can be denied warranty coverage for that repair. You may want to look in the Warranty forum for more info.
Also before you install that turbo timer note that it is not necessary on the WRX, so it will serve more of a "cool gadget" function than a practical one.

Yes, because the turbo is water-cooled and the coolant continues to circulate by convection after shutdown. There is a service document distrubuted by Subaru that you can find on this site with a search that explains this.

Think about it. The car comes from the factory with a turbo, intended for people with no idea how a turbo works. Clearly FHI thinks (and has though for the last 4 years) that such a device is unneccessary. Unless you are running a larger turbo, you don't need a timer either.

Its simply designed from the factory such that a timer is nothing mroe than a gadget (again, unless you are modding the turbo)
