a nice turbo blanket will help a lot + a heat shield over the turbo...doing everything you can will help, these cars run hot..which is why a fmic is sooooooooooooooo much more efficient if designed correctly + meth injection + a cold air intake.

sometimes you can't do anything if the weather is hot.

I'm not interested in going with a FMIC (too much tubing) but want to lower the intake charge as much as possible. Will an aftermarket TMIC be effective for this? Keeping in mind expandability. At some point I may replace the stock turbo with a slightly larger one - but not now.

I do not have a goal whp in mind. Just looking to make small, incremental modifications little at a time.

Thoughts?
Just wondering if you got or are you gettings AMRs exhaust?

Wrapping the DP and a turbo blanket will work the best. You can touch my turbo blanket on my 35R right after a WOT pull on the dyno.
