Can you paint the reflective tape and would it reduce its effectiveness?

It's made to be as reflective as possible for it's application, so I wouldn't paint it.

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
Im not sure you want to completely envelope your EWG in heat wrap. The Diaphragm is cooled by the movement of boost signal air and the heat sink effect of the aluminum top of the EWG. I would be afraid of cooking the diaphragm. I would see if you could wrap the cast high temp section and avoid the aluminum top section.

Good input. I am not sure what the heat threshold of the diaphragm is, but that would be good info to have before wrapping the entire thing.

Nice! Thanks for the pics, good reference for those looking to wrap headers.

It really is easy to work with, just keep it tight and make sure to use enough locking ties

FMIC makes up for the lag by allowing to COOL the air much better even when your average VF39 is dying up top. The air is COOLED. I've driven both TMIC/FMIC VF39 STi's. I don't have a problem driving either. I notice the lag, but the way I drive I don't mind it. I'm not HARD on the gas while daily driving.

Some people go 50% throttle, hit boost and shift at 3500rpms. Go 50% throttle again and shift at 3500rpms. some even do it shifting at 3000rpms. If you want more power, hold the RPMs!!! Loading up the engine too much and expecting too much. It's not a V8.

Correct, a FMIC will cool better thsn a TMIC. It's proven.

However, there is a lot more piping and area to pressurize in a FMIC setup, so you get much better throttle and boost response from a TMIC

I figured I'd chime in here and give an update.

The TMIC we are running still has the cool-tape on it, this stuff sticks pretty well and hasn't started coming off or peeling at all. However, DEI has released, in a few different sizes, their Reflect-a-Gold tape, which is even better at reflecting radiant heat. So that is also a good option, albeit a bit more pricey.

Our next step is to get a bigger splitter and modify it with a shroud to direct more air through our bigger intercooler, as the stock STi splitter isn't big enough.

We'll update this thread with that info soon
