Default HKS Turbo Timer Type 1

Hey I just got my HKS tt and want to mount it next to my cup holder in my 02 and i was wondering if anybody could tell me how to take apart the cup holder area and run the wires. I've never done anything like this working with wires. I just finished some engine and suspension mods lol
So if anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated
thanks

I run the HSK TT type 0 on my 240sx, very reliable easy to install if you can find a wiring harness (simple plug & play). Only part that requires modification is attaching the sensing wire to the e-brake. I would recommend soldering it since the splice kit isn't the greatest.

Other than that, set the timer for 1m30sec and that is typically enough time for your exhaust temps to drop to the idle range (I have an EGT installed to monitor this). The extra gas for idling is negligible.

I just bought an 04' wrx and it came with a turbo timer, but it's not working. The suby also came with hella horns, but i had to reground it. Does the Turbo Timer require a ground also?

I basically look to Unabomber's posts as passages of the Subaru Owner's Bible haha. When I bought my 2002 WRX it already had a turbo timer installed, but with it being my first turbo boosted car, I had no idea what it was, so for the first two weeks I would sit in my car for an extra 1-3 minutes letting it cool down until I saw this thread. N00b mistakes *embarrassed grin*

Just bought an 02 wrx, has a HKS turbo timer installed, but it is turned off. I just noticed yesterday that even while the key is not in the ignition, the car still reads how much gas in the tank and how many miles it has....As if the key was in an turned to the second position(or whatever its called)As well as the headlights are always partially on in the daytime if the car is on, and turn off when i pull the ebrake....A friend said it could be due to whoever installed the turbo timer... Any easy ways to mend my problems?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the stupid questions

Remove the timer perhaps? Otherwise, find the wiring instructions for it and compare them to how it's actually wired.

Default 15+ WRX Harness

Now, I'm fully aware that modern Subaru's don't NEED a turbo timer... However, after buying a non-water cooled turbo for my 04 STI, I got an Apex'i timer to make sure I didn't get any coking.

After 10+ years of driving with a timer, I'm used to having at least 30 seconds after I remove the key to roll up windows, adjust stereo volume and so forth. Having bought a 2016 WRX, now I find myself shutting of the car before all that is done. Does anyone know if HKS or another company makes a harness for a 2015+ WRX? I don't feel like splicing into the factory wiring...

You do know there is NO REASON for a turbo timer in your 2016 WRX right?

Yup, absolutely and fully aware. I only needed one on my STI when I went with an oil cooled turbo... I just want one on my WRX for the convenience of it.
