Thumbs up Perrin turbo blanket and ETS TMIC review

Figured I would toss up a review of the 2 new parts I recently installed on my car.

1st up with the Perrin turbo blanket. One thing I would like to note is that Perrin has very good customer service. When I ordered the blanket it was apparently out of stock. I called and explained how I would really like to have installed prior to my tune and they upgraded my shipping for free to make sure I had it in time so THANK YOU Perrin.



Install was easy, you don't need to do anything crazy to get this on. I started by removing the intercooler, and then my cobb heat shield







I basically followed Perrins install instructions on to route the stainless wire to tie it into place. it was a little tricky but really not hard. It fit without an issue even with the waste gate block off.

Cobb heat shield back on



Next up was the ETS TMIC. As much as I would love a front mount, it is just not worth it with my baby VF39. My tuner did advise that I would benefit from a larger TMIC though. I picked this up through the group by that was going on here on NASIOC. I saw that ETS offered an anodizing service and that was what made my final decision for me. ETS claims less of pressure drop over the Process west, works with stock STI splitter, and for me getting it in black was huge as I really like it in the black.

Packaging was awesome, huge box, tons of peanuts and everything was tapped off nicely

core




Installation was a breeze. I swapped over my hardline from the STI TMIC with new gaskets from Subaru. The ETS comes with a new throttle body couple and appropriate clamps. The fit was awesome, clears the AC lines and was no more of a fight then the STI one when sliding it into place.




The only thing that required a tiny bit of tweaking was the one bracket on the PVC hard lines, very minimal but figured it was worth noting


all finished up


I also wanted to see how well the stock splitter works with. Little bit of over hang



The car hit the dyno after I installed these parts. I needed to have my tune touched up after doing a 6 speed swap because of my light weight fly wheel. I had previously made 350/416 on a dyno dynamics (VF39/e85 and supporting mods).



Car made great power, 360/411 on a mustang dyno, only changes were the TMIC and a Perrin CBE (from an Apexi NOIR)



After the 3rd pull, Ian from PAS opened the hood and planted his hand on the intercooler and described it as "ice cold"

Thanks for looking
-Mike

Excellent write up. Would be interesting to see the number difference when on the same dyno and similar conditions. Glad you are happy with it.
