Themaus and Wrx02ftw were over to work on Themaus' car. Did an oil change and installed gauges. They convinced me to wrap my headers. The problem was I was convinced at 7 pm. Running around to four different auto parts store we could not get enough of the DEI Titanium wrap. Ended up with 50' of 2" DEI wrap in black.

This was the worse idea ever. I let the wrap soak in water for a while since we were all having dinner. Took the headers off and then began wrapping. The black dye was running. Everywhere! Plus it was 50' worth, so I had to pull 50' around and around and around as I made my way on the header. My garage was a mess. Black crap all over my garage.

In the end though it turned out looking good. WRx02ftw put my heat gun into the runners to dry off the wrap. I painted everything with silicone paint. We tested out the paint with a blow torch, yes it works an the wrap did not catch fire. And then we finally installed them.

We went for a drive at 1 am. Verdict...seems as though the temps have gone down minimally.i will have to give it a go some more to see but I don't think I'm going to get my IAT's down to +10* over ambient like I want. We are probably going to have to do more work in the fender well to isolate the intake.

I used dei reflective tape on my intake. Intake still gets screaming hot. Let me know how the blanket works for you. I've seen articles where they don't seem to help that much but maybe first hand experience will be good.

When it is time to go ewg and new turbo I might try coating them. All in all I just think I'm screwed in the engine temp department.

I put a turbo blanket on recently. Seems to keep things cooler, but I have no solid numbers to back that up. I don't have anything else for heat shielding besides the GrimmSpeed turbo heat shield.

Have you checked your IAT's with it on? I'm thinking it wouldn't help with IAT's since it is so far from the intake. I think the aluminum on the intake is what is killing me. You have a KSTech as well. I think in the summer I'm just going to be out of luck with IAT's no matter what since I need the larger diameter for my setup.

If the turbo blanket keeps heat in the turbo and helps keeping it out of the engine bay then it would drop the temps of the engine bay which should help with the heatsoak. You should just break down and do it.

Hahaha like I have been wussing out in my build. I just don't want to spend more money on something that doesn't help much like the wrap. The focus is the IAT. Give me back up on effectiveness first. That is $70 that needs to go towards the next turbo which might need a different size blanket anyways!

And I think my stupid heavy OEM heat shield has to be working better than that aluminum foil grimmspeed shield.

I know man. I take all comments as joking. Yes please take some temp readings. My issue is that heat wrap was supposed to knock some temps down and that clearly has not happened. I would think heat wrap would be more effective than a turbo blanket since in my mind the turbo will have more exposed areas than a wrapped header for heat to escape. Therefore turbo blanket will not be the answer, in my mind.

I think we need vents closer to the windshield on the hood to help vent air out of the engine compartment. The air is just getting trapped in there.
