This New-in-Box BeTime Best One Type 1 Turbo Timer is extremely rare and was only produced until the early 1990s. This classic turbo timer keeps your engine and turbo in top condition. This device ensures your turbo cools down properly after you turn off your engine, which helps to prevent premature wear and tear.

  • The BeTime Best One Type 1 Turbo Timer represents a time capsule of a bygone era in car tuning, where enthusiasts relied on external tools to optimize performance and protect their engines. It might be considered a sought-after collector's item for fans of retro Japanese car culture and enthusiasts who appreciate classic analog gauges over modern digital displays.

The BeTime Best One Type 1 Turbo Timer emerged during the era of rising popularity for performance tuning and aftermarket parts in Japan, particularly in the late 1980s and early 1990s. This period saw a surge in interest in turbocharged engines, leading to a demand for tools that helped monitor and protect these performance components.

Functions:

  • Display:
    • Engine RPM: This shows the engine's revolutions per minute, which can help you monitor engine performance and shift gears at optimal points.
    • Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT): Displays the temperature of the exhaust gases, which is crucial for monitoring turbocharger health and preventing overheating.
      Time (elapsed): May show the elapsed time the engine has been running, potentially useful for monitoring turbo timer duration.
      Warning:
    • Alerts for exceeding set RPM or EGT thresholds: The timer can be set to warn you with a buzzer or light if the engine RPM or EGT reaches a user-defined level, helping you avoid engine damage from over-revving or excessive turbo heat.
  • Peak Hold:
    • Stores the maximum recorded RPM and EGT values: This function allows you to review the highest RPM and EGT your engine encountered during a drive, which can be helpful for performance analysis or identifying potential issues.
  • Shift Light:
    • Provides a visual cue (likely an LED light) to indicate optimal shift points: The shift light can be programmed to illuminate at specific RPM ranges, giving you a visual signal for when to change gears for maximum performance or fuel efficiency.

  • Turbo Timer:
    • Keeps the engine running for a preset time after turning off the ignition: This allows the turbocharger to cool down by circulating oil for a set time after you turn off the engine, preventing premature wear and tear on the turbocharger components.

Please understand that retro items will have slight imperfections due to long-term storage or usage.
