Hey, I'm way noob to forced induction. I'm looking at buying an eclipse GST. Do turbo engines have alot higher maintenance? Also, are turbo timers totally necessary, and if so, will a stock turbo car have tha built in or included atleast?

no stock turbo cars have turbo timers iirc. That's why most of them water cool the turbo. Really a stock turbo car will prolly be less maintenance than a car which you throw a turbo kit on.

turbo timers are good if you run hard a lot or do a lot of highway driving, but they're not totally necessary.

anything else?
