Default Ceramic coated, Cobb heat shield, and PTP Blanket Overkill for TMIC?

Currently have a PNP VF39 that is ceramic coated along with the Cobb heat shield.

Would putting on a PTP blanket be overkill? I saw a few threads where people use 'insert brand' heat shield with a PTP blanket with some good results, but none of them mentioned a coated turbo. I just wanted to make sure there were no 'negative' effects.

Getting heat soaked sucks :-/ feels like the car weighs 2k lbs more.

The Blanket itself will do more than the coating and heat shield. Overkill? not really. All the Added benefits will aid with each other and help bring down engine bay temps.

yeah, I bought the heat shield like a month after having my car thinking it would help, cant even notice, replaced my blown turbo with a very low mile pnp and coated one, and still get heat soaked like no other :-/

just wanted to make sure that trapping 'too much' heat in the turbo wasn't going to be a bad thing.

another why good research can save you money! could have used that $50 from the heat shield towards a blanket!

There's no such thing as overkill.

My vf43 is ceramic coated hot side, as is my catted Cobb downpipe, turbo has a blanket, cobb heat shield and the GS crosspipe is coated and wrapped. Also, my TMIC is coated in thermal dispersant paint. I can put my hand on the heat shield anytime and not feel any heat. I'm not worried about oil fire from the crosspipe wrap as I have a Fumoto valve and pierce my old oil filter with a screw driver to drain it before taking it off.

Just sayin' ... Whatever floats your boat.

I went from nothing to:
wrapped Cobb downpipe
DEI gold taped TMIC
Perriin heatshield, with the underside DEI gold taped
PTP turbo blanket.

There is a noticeable difference............but still, sitting in traffic, your gonna get some heatsoak.

I have a DEI blanket for the intake(AEM) that I still need to put on. I don't regret spending the money on anything from above.

This is good to know... I was deliberating getting a blanket for my stock FXT (for now), but was thrown off since it's stock... If it can be beneficial it is worth it.

I agree never overkill when heatsoak is involved. I have blanket and heat shield and gold taped the TMIC. Everything helps a little.
