If thats what you call a winner, then I guess i had the definition of that word all wrong . Whiner must mean awesome to you. Really strange lingo is used here.
That was no sales pitch. I don't sell the blankets. I bought the guys product, and it works good, and thats the extent of it. Well, last time I try and help out here. Welcome to the subaru community I guess. Reminds me of EVOM. bunch of people who like to talk crap for no reason to guys that can actually help them.

This thread is a how to on wrapping a turbo. You came from DEEP left field to:

1. Pitch an eBay product.
2. Pitch a different product that is 2X the cost.
3. Whilst pitching it, you didn't link to it or the seller and hinted in vague terms to their nationality so if someone was interested, they couldn't find or buy it.

In effect, you offered nothing to the conversation except confusion. I read your initial post and this is what was recorded on my webcam during the reading:

I saw another guy talked about a blanket he used, from ebay,and was not attacked, i guess attacks are reserved for lower post counts? Weird that a moderator would resort to such childish antics. My intention was not to ruin your thread so i will refrain from posting further sir. Good luck with your exhaust wrapping endeavors.

Oh, and Ron, the turbo in the initial post, is that the super badazz GT16G OMGWTFBBQ turbo Blouch made? Great wrap write up too, going to do this and get the SPT heat shield with my Subie bux. Thanks!!

Yep, its a 16G XTR, but when it comes to market (and I hope soon) it will have a different name from what I've been told.

Great guide Ron, but is it absolutely necessary to taper the template like that? Or is that just a matter of being more detail oriented?

That's my OCD kicking in, you could very well have a pure rectangle for both the under and over wraps, but had I done so the internet dorks would have attacked.

So...this thread reminded me that I have one of the kits that you used. I've had it since 2010

Is it acceptable to use the ThermoTec along with a coating on the hotside? It's a Grimmspeed coating.

Moar barrier the better?

Ok, so I finally did this. I left the turbo on my car and it took me about 20 min. to thread the wires around the turbo but after I was finally done, I went for a spirited drive and the car seemed to feel a bit peppier (hopefully not just my imagination) and boost now starts at roughly 1600-1700 rpm.

I was expecting to get some smoking, but it never happened.

Thanks, Ron =)

For 35 bucks you can wrap several turbos. What part of that is overpriced?

This is not DEI titanium. Completely different materials.

yah, too many d|cks on nasioc, which is why i rarely visit. i found a positive review of the aussie blanket elsewhere, and a little surfing for more info led me here. anyway, thanks for the info- even if you are the seller

I read through this entire thread, great how-to Unabomber, but I couldn't find an answer to this question. I have a FMIC and was thinking about doing this but I'm curious if I will see as much benefits from doing so since my IC is not on top of the turbo.

I await your answer, either good or hate filled. I'm a big boy. I won't cry.

I have a front mount.
I have a wrapped turbo.

If nothing else, wrapping your turbo with a front mount is cheap and easy and it will prevent you getting a burn on your forearm when doing other engine work. The only other benefit would be to any rubber/plastic components around your turbo (and there's a butt-ton in that area) as the heat makes plastic gummy and rubber crunchy.

^^^^^

doing anything and everything possible to reduce underhood heat is one of the best mods you can do.

this is one of the most overlooked and underrated things you can do to help overall reliability and performance especially if you have a tmic

I just did this last night and accidentally installed the wrap with the locking ties weaving through the silver AND tan covering. How detrimental if at all would that be? As i was doing it i figured it'd be better because it holds the two materials together and more secure. are there any drawbacks to this?

He got his sales pitch all wrong. You are supposed to say three strong sentences, short and sweet... and thats is. His was really obvious and sounded desperate
