Yeah, it should. It's really just a piece of material that sits over the top of the turbo. The shape is just contoured to go around the IWG arm. The overall size of the turbine housing doesn't really matter because you just strap it on with wire.

the camera has a preloaded adjustable emissivity value for the material that you are looking at. cast iron, aluminum, steel, human skin, plastics, etc.

for those that arent sure what emissivity even is---

At a minimum you should be posting the average temperature drop of all components, definitely not the sum.

You wouldn't stick three pots of water outside, measure a 10 deg drop in each, and say that the outside temperature dropped by 30 degrees would you? Add another pot and it's now a 40 deg drop. When you start doing that, the numbers become meaningless. It's really detracting from the validity of your tests for anybody who knows what they're looking at. I promise you, anybody who looks at the numbers and sees what you've done to get that "70F" number will start to question the legitimacy of the rest of the test setup. Especially since no outside temperature is listed for the tests, just the 68F room in which you're doing the tests, which, since the car is spending almost no time in there, doesn't matter.

If the outside temp really didn't change at all, and the idle time is the same in both tests, then those are impressive results.

I can see your point and understand where you are coming from. For me personally while testing, listing the parts that are affected with before and after results and thinking of it as one net result makes sense to me because the goal is to reduce total underhood temps. I like to look at it this way and you do not. Your saying that its misleading because if you are holding a thermometer over the area it would only read 35F +/- less and not 70F.

I totally see from that perspective your argument and I agree with you with the information that you presented. I would agree more if I was taking multiple readings from the same componant, then giving a net result. But all things aside, the data is here and there is enough that I would hope that one can see a difference that is proven.

you may want to seriously reconsider that. this is a bare turbo after a hard 1,2,3 wot pull, X2, then popping hood and running to take image. after about a minute it will cool back down to a normal driven 500-550F

37F and windy, 2 nights ago.

Would you guys recommend this for a stock sti? It's a 13 and I already read it fits! Also I know keeping heat low is great for the intercooler, did I just answer my own question? How is hard is installation?

Do you know if the material inside the blanket is different, or is it the just the outer layer? It is very clear that everything externally is different/better.

I would definitely get one, keeping your underhood temps as low as possible is the goal. Installation is super easy and the fit is great.

And....Mine should be here Thursday. Cheap reliability/performance mod--the 1st one that I've bought (at 889 miles right now on my 13).

According to ptp, The Lava blankets are made of the same material as the original but then
covered internally with an additional material which is called Silica, it's a high temperature rated material that provides extra heat resistance and durability for the blankets.

I think you should ask Perrin to donate one and see how it holds up to the PTP.

Have always liked my original PTP blanket (in combination with a heatshield lined with DEI Reflect-a-goldŽ). I'll probably get a "lava" when I do a turbo upgrade. Thanks for doing the testing!

you're welcome, and you will be very happy with the lava blanket

Perrin is very busy and tough to get them to follow through. But it would be a fun test to do. I suspect they would be exactly the same or similar, but you never know until I get one in my hands.
