compatibility of a turbotimer dont differ from gasoline to diesel engine
what i mean to say is that the basic function of a turbo timer is to allow the vehicle to idle the engine for a timed period, with the ignition key removed. This allows the engine oil and turbo center cartridge to cool down and prevent internal turbo damage.so its can go on both diesel and gasoline engines.
you can set your own time and even the rpms you want it to idle
it also has safety features so that no one can drive off your car while you have left the vehicle with the key with you

turbos are to be kept on idle as the first thread states and thats the end of it period.or else end up with a blown turbo at some point.

I recently learned that the Turbo timer is connected to the Ignition key cylinder.
So, it would be possible to fit a Turbo timer on any car.

Turbochargers run at a speed of about 200,000 rpm.
