I have a thermal coated grimmspeed shield that i gold taped the underside and i have to say it is a great piece of metal very easy to adjust and install. I also wrapped my downpipe and gold taped the ic and aem intake and been happy thus far. Probly should add a ptp blanket now after reading this.

the blanket would be the best bang for your buck out of all of those items. I have obtained some downpipe wrap, so as soon as I get some free time ill be wrapping the cobb downpipe and doing another infrared study.

youre going to have a 350 F turbocharger at idle baking the hell out of your TMIC. Prob like 200 F in the center of the TMIC.

How necessary do you think a turbo blanket or heat shield is on a car running a FMIC and reverse flow IC pipes? I also have an open grille in the hood scoop opening to evacuate heat at a stop. Great thread though, i've used a similar camera in the fire department many times

All though in your case its not to necessary. But I would consider a turbo blanket for keeping the heat in the exhaust which speeds exhaust flow for better performance. Also will help keep the heat away from the cold side of the turbo.

Installed the blanket this afternoon and then went for a 30 minute blast up and down the back roads. It works really well.. the heat shield was only warm to the touch, instead of scalding hot. I am paranoid the blanket could work itself loose over time and interfere with the wastegate arm, I'll have to keep an eye on it.

4k views because it has been linked 100 times to various forums on the web! I dont know if OP fully understands the info he has brought to the table! If Op could do some more testing of the PTP blanket alone and then present the info to PTP..... they might be gracious enough to pay him for his work or at least refund him the cost of the blanket. From a marketing and R&D stand point, this kind of valuable info would cost PTP thousands of dollars!

If they havent seen this thread (im sure someone has now mentioned it to them), someone or OP should call and speak with them about it. Ask them exactly what they would like to see, and find out if they would be willing to donate some $ to the guy or at least pay for his blanket he purchased.

OP is hero!!! Putting old myths about heat shields to rest!!
PTP should be very thankful for the info he has provided already. Proving their product in plain and simple pictures sells. If you read this thread, and you dont have one on order or in process.... you are doing youre self a big disservice!

I said back on page 1 i believe.... but again Op SERIOUSLY thank you for doing this experiment for the subaru community.

Why oh why are your kids getting your panties in a bunch about this? I have been touting this for YEARS and YEARS. And do yourself a favor....DIY for 900% less.

tie down your blanket tight with your stainless wire that came with the blanket, it shouldnt go anywhere if secured correctly. do a couple of figure eights around the fittings on blanket on both sides and you will be set.

thanks for the props man, they know, ive talked to them. It's on their facebook and actual website too. I figured it was going to be popular news for all of us and would give PTP's sales a shot in the arm.

It's about actual results that you can see. Now people know that if they get this exact turbo blanket they will net the results as posted. It makes things easier knowing exactly what you are getting for your money and time. Now doing a DIY blanket is a great idea and can save money, but it may not net the same results and is more labor intensive than just taking your TMIC and heatshield off and wrapping this product around your turbo. A DIY blanket may show a surface temp of 160 F instead of 105 F, which wont be as effective than an actual blanket that was bought. But on the other hand it may be better performing and cheaper so it all goes back to actual results that you can see and prove. 90 bucks shipped isnt all that bad for guaranteed numbers compared to 35-40 for a homemade blanket that will have various results between different people who may use different materials to make it. Or it just may be all the pretty colors that have people so happy.

Reading this thread really makes me happy a vendor I bought my turbo from, is comping me a Perrin turbo blanket (which is a ptp blanket) for a delayed order.
