PTP has released a new Subaru turbo blanket for us, made from the Lava materials that they sucessfully use in their other products.
With an outer layer made from actual pulverized volcanic lava rock (continuous-filament basalt) formed into fabric and woven into a tight mesh weave, these turbo blankets are internally insulated with high temperature calcium magnesium silicate wool, overlaid with a high temperature silica fabric for increased durability and for improved thermal resistance. The Lava Turbo Blankets are designed to withstand the harshest of conditions. PTP Subaru Lava Turbo Blankets are designed to fit all stock Subaru WRX/STI turbochargers. They also can fit many other after market turbochargers with internal wastegates.

comparison to the original turbo blanket
As you can see the new lava blanket is slightly larger than the original blanket. This size difference is really great and now covers the downpipes flange and has much better coverage with this slight size increase.
