Thank you so much.

After a long break, Im back and got a few more thing done to my car.

After the stories of turbo blow up's, and the theories of Turbo has to be cooled down before shutting of the engine, I finally found what i was looking for to save my engine after a hard days work.

This little device is called a "TURBO TIMER" ,is a simple device that helps to keep running even when you take out the keys and even "lock the car" and go, This saves the head ache of sitting in the car and waiting for 1-2min's before you can shut the engine off and then go to your destination. I know every one thinks why need a device for such a small things but trust me when you are in a rush you will never bother to do so.

I had seen these things on internet etc but today i witnessed it my self, and got one also FINALLY!.

Here is video for you reference,


In this video i have set it timer to 30 sec, it can be set to 20mins as well. The timer has 2 timer setting and one Volt display option. This timer also can be switched on and off so its not a compulsion to keep the engine running.

There's a con with the turbo timer.
If a driver/valet/someone who has no clue about it use the car, well, worst case, car'll end up banged into a wall or someone's car.

Well,Since i had got my light, The bug to tweak it got bigger and bigger so finally i tried doing this to my light. I replaced the normal LED rings with CCFL's, But unfortunately due to bad fitment they didnt last very long. So more on this front later.

Secondly not just looks but to enhance visibility with some words of wisdom from a friend of mine and after a lot of thinking i finally decided to change the low beam projector as well
.
Before i was like what difference does it make every projector is almost the same, is it worth investing more?

all that but soon after a hours of discussion and practical tests, There is a helluva difference between projector and its quality. Not every projector is as good, is what i could figure out,The angling of the projector,the cut out, the size, the lens. Everything matters, So getting DIY projector job is not sufficient. Geting it right is the challenge.

So We replaced the low beam projector with the one used in skoda laura.,and here is the result.

1st pic will be of the low beam that came with the after market projector lights, Then its the laura projector low beam

The Light difference is truly amazing, A Low beam is enough for daily driving, I was so impressed with this, Even I did the same mod on my headlights and the output is of the hook. I will post details in my thread soon.
