    quite easy
    BUT you will need to take a chip out of your spare key so the remote start works
    but that will allow a thief to snap and cap the car and nice it as it will start

    normally linked into an alarm (generally aftermarket) which does it, some also do a turbo timer on it (i.e. runs the engine at idle for a set amount of time after the drive to cool the turbo and allow excess oil to drain from it). To be honest if you drive gently for last section of your drive its not needed...

    if you go with a T timer you cant lock the doors till the car shuts off
    you will have to use the key to lock it

    best way is to get a bike remote start
    get your spare key if you have 1
    remove the transponder and tape it to a wire in the steering cowling
    bike ones are better as its not an alarm aswell

    I thought the point of the turbo timer was to allow the turbo to spin down without being starved of oil, as the oil pump is driven from a running engine. Probably not relevant to this thread just checking my understanding ;)

    Not sure to be honest, thought it had something to do with not letting oil solidify in the turbo, so I could be speaking ****....

    Your both in fact quite right,

    The turbo timer will keep the engine on after you remove the ignition for a set period of time to prevent the oil from 'coking' (the destructive distillation of the engine oil)

    It allows the turbines to cool down correctly.

    Good if your thrashing it everywhere and don't have a minute to stop and wait, but its more a show-off thing than anything thing else. Not needed on diesels to be honest, if at all on petrol road driven vehicles.

    Had one on the supra, didn't use it much to be honest as a pain...what's an after run?

    I believe an 'After run' is an electric oil pump that once you've switched your engine off, it continues to pump oil through to the turbo to cool it down to a predetermined temperature to ensure longevity of the turbo without having the need to leave the engine running etc...

    correct me if im wrong.
