A turbo timer prevents heat soaking of the turbo charger by keeping the engine oil flowing even after shutting down the car and removing the key. Oil gets very hot from a turbochargers, because it needs to keep the turbocharger as cool as possible, while the turbocharger is heated up from 950 C exhaust gas. Some tuners also choose to install an additional oil cooler to vent this stored heat of the oil when the oil is flowing. To make sure that oil is pumped into upgraded turbochargers an additional oil pump may be fitted to reduce the risk of a failure of the oil system, potentially destroying the engine and turbocharger. An additional oil pump can be required if the turbocharger is below the oil pan and gravity wouldn't help getting the hot oil out of the turbocharger.
