RE: Turbo Blanket effectiveness

So I have now had the opportunity to drive with and without a turbo-blanket and monitoring intake air temps on the throttle-body side of the intercooler. It certainly makes a big difference!

Before the blanket, cruising down the highway would usually yield intake temps 15deg above ambient, sometimes as low as 10deg above. WITH the blanket, I am regularly seeing 5deg above ambient.

But the biggest difference is not the numbers, its how stable they are while also being cooler. Before, i would see IATs jump 50deg at an average stop light and barely come down before the next. Now, im only seeing around a 10 degree rise at stoplights and the temps come back down much quicker! So instead of averaging 25-30deg above ambient around town, its more like 10-15 average.

All in all I would highly recommend the turbo blanket, especially now that Ive been able to see the ACTUAL difference they make! I honestly did not think the IATs would be effected this dramatically, but Im certainly not complaining

Between the turbo blanket and wrapping your exhaust pipes it make a huge difference in under-hood temps, which results in lower operating temps overall which = power/reliability!

Sometimes its the little things that make the noticeable difference, I personally went with the DEI brand but Moore Performance makes super good stuff too, I use their front camber plates =)

I'm curious to see what the difference in temps I will see when I run a blanket with a heatshield. But then again I also have a thermal coating on my hot side. Nice to see some results though Blue!

I would imagine running them both is better than not, but since the radiant heat should be getting partially soaked up by the blanket, I doubt it would do a whole lot more... but hey it doesnt hurt!
