HKS Turbo Timer Type 1 in the ER34

The ER34 comes with a R Spec Auto Turbo Timer that worked really well except that at times I can't figure out the full functionality of it due to not having a manual and unable to source one online as well.

Well since I have a HKS Turbo Timer Type 1 lying around in my parts bin, why not use that? This unit was removed from my previous ride (Project 8110) and I loved its functionality. Below are the specifications of it.

Got the R Spec unit removed and installed the HKS Turbo Timer Type 1 in the ER34 with much satisfaction. I placed it below the steering column just right underneath the TCS ON/OFF button. Everything worked well and dialed in my settings for my 2 stage shift warning. The funny thing is that the auto turbo timer function seems to idle the car for a waaaaay shorter time as compared to the R Spec unit.

Hmmmm.....perhaps I'll just fixed it to 60 seconds and leave it as it is.
