The difference is, yours was in txt format and a couple pics of what it is. Although many have read the DIY, many were likely skeptical about it or even gave it a second thought. Had you had access to things like the OP, you would have been praised as a god. I think for the DIY guys who love to make their own stuff when ever they can, would love the benefit of the DIY blanket and with this info Herocrank has made, it will consume many a Sunday for those guys.

Props to both of you!

For the DIY guys who have some spare time and little funds.... go read Rons DIY about the turbo blanket.

Too bad I already bought a PTP turbo blanket recently or I would have done it. It works great!

So before the thread ruiners get going, understand that PTP is not currently a sponsor/vendor. While I want one and would like a GB, on this site it has to be initiated by a paying vendor (which everyone better f'ing understand). I have no idea what the vendor fee is but hopefully they're willing to step in again. Regardless, very good review and data OP, and dialogue by all involved. Science FTW. $12,000 FLIR cam FTW.

HeroCrank, would you be willing to do the sames tests but w/o the heat shield (ie just blanket)?

Would be a nice progression for us to see:
Bare
Blanket
Blanket + Shield
Blanket + Shield + xyz

My heatshield is modified to fit with my cobb downpipe but the OEM heat shield does fit with my PTP blanket. I'll try and post a pic later.

Is the blanket used in those pictures the actual subaru blanket that PTP sells, or is it the universal t3 blanket?

This seems like a fantastic, in expensive mod to extend reliability with the reduction of underhood temps and IATs. I have a 13 STI on the way and I hate to be a complete noob, but I have a couple of questions:

1. How do you think SOA would react to a turbo blanket if a warranty claim were to arise?

2. Can I safely assume that heat reduction measures (such as a turbo blanket, reflective tape on the IC), can be safely utilized while still on a stock tune?

Thanks

I have a buddy that's a subaru tech ( been one for 10 yrs), and I had him throw on my Perrin blanket and heatshield. I asked him about warranty and he said his dealership most likely would not cause a fuss over it. I know SOA is the final word in warranty claims, but the dealerships word goes pretty far with them.

They might try to jip you if your warranty claim is for a blown turbo, but its pretty unlikely the stock one will crap out in less than 3 yrs.

1 - I highly doubt they'll fuss over it, but I'm not SOA, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt

2 - Correct

If a Subaru tech put anything on while your car is under warranty they cannot deny a warranty claim period!! unless they make u sign a waver or can prove poor maintenance, or abuse.

yes, it will fit under the oem heat shield, and if you want megatron overkill, get the SPT heat shield to go over your oem heat shield as well as the turbo blanket. now that would be a great infrared study to complete.

Confirmed it does fit from PTP..emailed them last night. Seems true what they say though... I want to use the oem hs so i can also use the spt one i have along with it also. Not sure anymore..

Thanks for your interest in our products; we are glad to assist you.
Regarding the heat shield, you certainly don’t need it as the PTP blanket will keep under hood temps by itself!

We can tell you that many PTP customers have used the heat shield successfully with their blanket. We honestly don’t recommend utilizing it because nothing should rub on the blanket or else it will mess it up. It’s totally your call on this!


Thanks,

PTP Turbo Blankets

dont worry about this man. your heat shield will not be rubbing on your blanket since its not a moving part. It just will be resting making contact at best with the blanket and not sure how it will mess it up.
