Sell them all and use the money for some real mods.  I see absolutely no need for spending money, or time on a turbo timer.  Just mentally think of where you\'re going, and for the last couple miles, don\'t get into boost.  It is soooo simple, AND better for your motor than a turbo timer, simply because you\'re moving, as opposed to being parked.

I have searched, but can not find anything.

I have a cheapo KNC turbo timer, and have bought the HKS N/FT-1 turbo timer harness, this connects fine to the timer, but on my last s12 I couldn\'t work out where the hell on the ignition wiring to connect the harness, it just didnt seem to fit any of the blocks.

Does anyone have diagrams for fitting/wiring the timer in, either hard wiring or via the harness... just to be sure im plugging it in the correct place.

Should connect to the harness just below the steering column where the steering column bottom cover is you have to take that one off first. Also when I installed my HKS timer using that harness i had to trim the edges off of the connector to make it fit. It is the right size and everything but there are edges inside that make it so it won\'t fit right so just trim those and it will work just fine. You\'ll see what i mean when you try to connect the two pieces.

Yeah looks right, I mean, unclip the connector off the bottom of the ignition barrel, then the harness looks to match, but the block is too wide - hence the trimming... right?

That\'s the block i\'m thinking of...

Take the new harness and push it up against it as you would be trying to put it together. Now look inside the connector of the new harness you should see some edges inside that make it slightly too small. Trim those off with a razor blade and you should be able to get it to fit. That is what i did with mine.

Worse comes to worst you can always hard wire it.
