You do not need this.
It's just a gadget for car, nothing else

A Boost gauge can be fun to watch but a turbo timer is an obsolete item. Any car with an after run coolant pump (like ours) has no need for a turbo timer.

That this is necessary then it would be standard equipment for all cars, or as an option

If you like diodes and the numbers exists a digital version
