Default Infrared Testing Volume 1 *featuring PTP turbo blankets and GRIMMSPEED*

2011 WRX with the grimmspeed heatshield,Cobb catted downpipe, I let the car warm up and idled it for 20 min after operating temperature. The ambient temp outside was 72 F and the car was in the shade when I used the camera. The turbo itself was 352 F, the top of the grimmspeed heat shield was 137 F, and the top of the TMIC was 112 F. I will upload pics when I get a chance.

Now I just recieved in the mail my new PTP turbo blanket, and am very curious to see the differences. I will be updating this thread with all my info when I complete the install.

2011 WRX
turbo temp--352
heatshield temp--137
TMIC--112

This should be something also to consider taking the exhaust temps from dp to midpipe with infrared.
Thx for taking the time to do something like this as this can be very useful info.

Nice work herocrank as this will aid people trying to prevent heat soak. U can clearly see where the heatsoak is on the tmic hence clearly where the turbo is lol.

Lol when I bought my perrin TB and thought the same so I got the DEI titanium pipe wrap and also got the DEI gold tape for my end tanks on the tmic. Since I had 30' of it I even taped up my Cobb SF cold air box. Didn't think would be much of a difference but all I can say is wow!! Spools around the same maybe a littler quicker but its the way the boost comes in i immediately noticed especially when getting off the throttle then rolling back into wot.

Edit: also to I noticed when sitting at long lights the throttle is much more responsive do to less or taking longer to heat soak everything.

These are awesome! Looking forward to seeing the results with the PTP blanket. I have a PTP blanket and a GrimmSpeed heat shield on mine. I'd also be interested in seeing how it looks after some hard runs through the gears.

Is there any way you can do the same with a STI intercooler installed, perhaps a buddy's car.

Also, pull your heatshield and apply the gold foil to the inside of the shield. This helps keep radiant heat from transfering through the HS in the first place.


Here's the chimney from my old '93 Turbo Leg. (I did the same thing to my specB stock heatshield)

This is awesome, a fellow enthusiast with the access to a camera that 99% of us wouldn't be allowed to be in the same room with....

Bump and Kudos to your sir.
