Here is a little how to with pictures for those of you who are as unsure as I was whether or not you could or want to do the install yourself. Enjoy but complete at your own risk!!!

Note-In order to use the auto feature on the turbo timer, it requires you to tap into the speed signal wire on the ECU. This is somewhat difficult and requires going through the firewall. Always be careful.

Tools needed:

Turbo Timer
Wire
Wire Tap-in Connectors
Butt Connectors
Phillips Screwdriver
Wire Crimping Tool
Knife (to cut tape)
Electrical Tape

1. Purchase your Turbo Timer - GReddy Full Auto Timer for me.


2. Decide where in your car you want to mound the turbo timer. For me it was under the stereo in the perfectly sized storage bay.

3. Remove the negative battery terminal.

4. Remove the climate control knobs.

5. Roll the center vents forward and at the end of their range, keep twisting while pulling the outside out towards you, thereby removing each vent.

6. Remove the two screws behind the vents.

7. Gently pull off the silver trim piece surrounding the stereo, climate control stuff, storage bay, and vents.

8. Remove the storage bay by removing two screws.

9. Put a hole in the back of the bay big enough to push the turbo timer's wires through. The unit is now ready to be connected.



10. Time to get to the Ignition Harness. This can be difficult as you are messing with your precious interior. Use force tactfully.

First, loosen the dash. Pull the weather stripping away from the A-pillar and then remove the A-pillar. Remove the screw holding the dash near the fuse cover. Loosen the dash (it is held down by some clips).



11. Remove the screws at the underside of the steering column.



12. Now the gauge trim is able to come up. There are clips at each place where an arrow points. Remove the section directly under the gauges and the steering column cover.



13. Now remove the screws on the underside of the steering wheel.



14. The two plastic pieces surrounding the key receptacle should be loose from the removal of the screws and removable by pushing one half in and pulling one half out towards the back (held by a clip).

15. Locate the ignition wires which run from the key receptacle, under the steering column, and then up and around the back left side.

16. Remove the piece of tape holding all wires together towards the top of their run.



17. Find the large red wire amongst the 8 or so wires and tap into it using the tap-in connectors.



18. Feed the wire down to the turbo timer unit and connect it to the red wire(12v), using a butt connector, off the back of the unit (you must first cut off the harness).

19. Find the thick sky blue wire amongst the 8 or so wires and tap into it using the tap-in connectors.



20. Feed the wire down to the turbo timer unit and connect it to the green wire(ON), using a butt connector, off the back of the unit.

21. Find the black and white wire amongst the 8 or so wires and tap into it using the tap-in connectors. Sorry I didn't take a picture of this, but it is the only black and white wire in the ignition wire group.

22. Feed the wire down to the turbo timer unit and connect it to the blue wire(ACC), using a butt connector, off the back of the unit.

23. Now all of you ignition wires should be connected and look like this.



24. Now for the parking brake safety feature. In the passenger foot well, find the group of wires near where the highest point of the meeting of the center console and carpet.

25. Remove the tape from that section and find the white wire with black stripe. Tap into it using one of the tap-in connectors.



26. Feed the wire back to the turbo timer unit and connect it to the brown wire using the butt connector.

27. Now time for the ever elusive speed signal wire. I found it easiest to remove the air box and the battery.

28. Remove the harnesses entering the ECU near the driver's side headlight.

29. Take the lowest harness (black connector) and find a good place to remove some of the black wire loom and electrical tape.

30. Find the white and orange wire amongst the 15 or so wires and tap into it using the tap-in connectors.



31. Feed the wire along the engine bay to the firewall behind the battery. There is a small hole that enters the driver's foot well there almost directly behind the battery, possibly off to the right a little bit.

Here is a picture of the wire coming off the ECU in the engine bay (outlined by the red).



Here is a picture of my amp wire going through the firewall, you can use the same hole.



32. Feed the wire down to the turbo timer unit and connect it to the purple wire(speed signal sensor), using a butt connector, off the back of the unit.



33. Find a good grounding point and ground the black wire off the back of the unit to somewhere in the car.

34. Your turbo timer is now fully connected. Replace the negative battery terminal and try out the timer. Once you know it is working correctly, carefully replace all trim using the reverse steps of what you did to remove it!!!


Here's a pic of my completed installation
