I still have a problem with you guys wrapping the Y pipe part of the hose into the IC. The air coming from the turbo is HOT. You don't want to keep the heat inside the pipe/hose... JMO

But do you want it radiating up under the ic? The ic is made to cool hot air...

Yea, but the IC is only about 60% to 70% efficient so, cooling down hotter air is harder than cooler air if the pipe can cool itself off, when not under boost, and not heat up the air more when/if it stays hot & not just under boost. JMO but that's why you NEED, a temp probe when you do things like this.

The stock Y pipe is all metal, being as it sits under the intercooler and is really close to the hot turbo, tranny, and engine, we thought the reflectice tape would be a good idea to ward off heat. If the pipe gets heated it will transfer heat into the intercooler core, which is what we don't want.

However, we are using reflective heat tape. It will reflect heat off of its outer surface. It doesn't do a very good job of keeping heat in. That's where people get confused.

Heat wrap is used for keeping heat IN.

Reflective tape or material is used for keeping heat OUT.

They cannot be used to do both. Which is why you wouldn't use heat wrap on your intercooler, or a reflectice material on your exhaust manifold.

So I think the tape on our y-pipe is doing more to keep heat out rather than in.

That intercooler looks like it got into a fight with Paul Wall, while he was selling "grills" or something other rap item-

I didn't read the whole thread, but hopefully you got some solid results!

Haha yeah, it's definitely nice and shiny now.

And it definitely works, keeps the heat out during regular driving. We haven't track tested it yet. We will soon though....

Stock heat shield is pretty tight. Being as this blanket is such a low profile item, I think you will still be able to get it to fit, you need about an 1" or so of clearance.

Ive got the blanket and just heat wrapped my Grimmspeed manifolds and EWG kit. I used about 65 ft of the wrap on just that alone. I have yet to install everything (need funds for turbo), but DEI makes some awesome stuff.

BTW, What could you do for an EWG?

Does the turbo blanket can affect the life of a stock IHI turbo?

If it did affect it, it would be negligble.

Are you trying to wrap the external wastegate up-pipe and associated piping or the actual wastegate unit itself?

The unit itself might be able to use the turbo blanket for ease of installation, but the regular heat wrap could be wrapped around it with similar results if you are looking to retain heat.

The UP is wrapped. Just wondering what you guys could come up with. You did so well with the top-mount.

Oh we can come up with something

I don't have an external wastegate on my car so I don't really know where it sits exactly, size, space, etc.

BUT.....DEI has a universal turbo blanket, it's made to be able to wrap around a turbo and custom fit it. This could probably be cut down to size and wrapped completely around your EWG.



We didn't use this because their new Ti Turbo blanket is fitted and lower profile. But this should work great for what you need.

Feel free to PM us

I need a turbo blanket with ties; hit me up!... I have my down pipe already wrapped. I didn't get those fancy ties though, I had to use stainless steel clamps I bought off amazon for 4$.

I bought a bag of those stainless steel tie wraps at harbor freight for about 8$. There were quite a few tie wraps in the bag.

Any steel locking ties will work, just make sure you get at least a 14" tie, or it will not wrap around the Downpipe.

I checked Lowes and the longest they carry are 11", they dont work.

You can always put two ties together, but sometimes that doesn't quite work right.
