Default Turbo Blanket owners

I recently just bought a turbo blanket from a member. Its unused. Its an AMR brand. Just curious how much its supposed to wrap around the turbo? I could only get it partially wrapped, leaves about a 4-5" gap on unwrapped turbo exposed. Is it too small or is it supposed to be like that?

Sounds too small. It's supposed to cover the whole hot side. pics would be great though.

Are you talking about the whole turbo? You might be looking at the cool side wondering why it's too small

^ That's what I was thinking as well. The snail looking part of the turbo should not be covered. So if that's what you are saying is not covered then it's fine.

I'm amazed they make smaller turbos than the stock "hair dryer"(td04) they have on there, I'd figure if anything it would be too big if for another turbo.

So concensus says it should wrap completely around right? No gap?

Just noticed that the guy that sold it to me had an 06-07. Mine is an 08. Maybe the turbo is different?

whats the point if it doesn't wrap all the way around? I would think a 5 inch gap is pretty substantial, no?

Stock it's the same.

If your turbo is different then a blanket would be least of my worries.

Of course, being that it's business hours, you could call AMR.

My turbo is stock. AMR lists the blanket to cover both my car and the guys that sold it to me. I just called, guy is out to lunch and will call me back.

I have maybe a .5-1" gap between the ends of mine. 5 sounds like a pretty big gap. I have a PTP turbo blanket on a stock 11 STi turbo

thats the info I was looking for. I spoke to amr and he said its supposed to have no gap. He mentioned to make sure it was routed under the wastegate shaft which it was. I'll take another stab today in the sunlight. Maybe I was wrapping it over something thats not supposed to be.

Your blanket is fine. Doesn't matter if the bottom is exposed. And that wider end is designed to go around the WG arm. You're putting the blanket on wrong.

As you stand over the engine bay looking at the turbo You should be able to read the logo on the blanket left to right. Not upside down.

It should look similar to this PTP blanket image I found online.
