Default NEW > Down Pipe Blanket By PERRIN

Introducing the NEW Down Pipe Blanket By PERRIN

MSRP $149.99
Available Now!


PERFORMANCE
PERRIN Thermal Blankets will improve response while lowering under hood temperatures. Thermal losses from headers, uppipes, turbine housings, and downpipes, cool exhaust temperatures thus the exhaust loses energy and velocity. This cooling effect reduces turbo response and horsepower. PERRIN Thermal Blankets insulate the exhaust from losing that critical heat, which in turn maintains the velocity of the exhaust gases. Improve power and protect vital under hood components from heat damage with this easy-to-install and economical part from PERRIN!

DESIGN
PERRIN Downpipe thermal blanket fits snugly around the downpipe to keep nearly all radiant heat away from your intercooler, intake and other engine components. The downpipe blanket features 3-layer construction. Including an outer cover made from Silicone Impregnated Fiberglass (rated to 500F continuous), an inner layer made of Calcium Magnesium Silicate Insulation (rated to 2000F continuous) and Silica (rated to 1800F Continuous) insulation used to contain the inner layer.

INSTALLATION
Stainless steel rivets are mounted to the blanket and stainless steel wire is supplied to secure the blanket to your downpipe. This allows for simple “Lace Up” type installation, even with the downpipe already installed!

FITMENT
The shape of the PERRIN downpipe thermal blanket is specifically designed to fit over all stock Subaru downpipes, PERRIN downpipes and most aftermarket downpipes. The PERRIN downpipe thermal blanket works great with the PERRIN Heat Shield for the ultimate in heat control.

5 YEAR WARRANTY
PERRIN Performance warrants to the original purchaser, all PERRIN products to be free from defects in material and workmanship within a sixty (60) months period from the date of purchase.

Wholesale clients please contact your PERRIN sales rep for more information.

Edit: sorry ill ask in a different form. Would it be advisable or necessary to keep a closer eye on exhaust temps when using products such as up-pipe, turbo, and downpipe heat blankets?

Hello, no there isn't any more attention needed to be made to exhaust temp when our blankets are installed. Heat will be retained in the pipes, but it's not enough that it is going to cause any damage.

We haven't done any testing yes on the downpipe, for the turbo blanket, we've seen a reduction from 900F down to 300F on the surface of the turbo! The downpipe won't be as much, since the downpipe doesn't get as hot, but will make a good reduction in underhood temps!

I have a Perrin Downpipe with a Cat. Will this blanket capture too much heat and overcook the cat? Outback XT 5mt 08

The cats are rated to a temp that exceeds the EGT's seen at the catalytic converter. Adding the blanket does hold in more heat, but not enough that it causes any issues. We had this tested on a car with our downpipe for a long time and with dynoing and other abuse the cat was perfectly fine.

We might, we were working on one at one point.

It doesn't have that, sorry! It might be something that we can add in the future, but we don't have any plans for it right now.

Nope, nothing wrong with it, just a prototype.

Stock Turbo & Invidia DP
I just installed the Turbo & DP Blanket today & it went very easy. Total time was like an hour. Although I did already have the heat shield off because of the Invidia DP install.
One note on the install:
It makes it easier to loose fit the blankets and then go back and snug up the wire.

This pair makes a huge difference in TMIC heat soak & also the front axel boot which is right next to the DP cat.
The fitment of the DP blanket was a little small around the DP cat and left about 1/4 inch of bare pipe in that area. Other than that I like the product.
The combination of these two blankets leads me to belive that I wont need to buy a turbo heat shield since the TMIC was cool to the touch on all surfaces.

Can anyone comment on noise insulation with the DP blanket. It seems like this blanket is insulated thick enough to not only trap heat, but also to perhaps reduce the noise coming from a down pipe.

The blanket will give a little noise reduction, but nothing super noticeable, since most of the sound will come from the engine and turbo. Thanks!

That is something that we've been thinking about. The only thing is that it would be pretty expensive.

I'm not sure if you're asking if it's made with a cutout for a EWG return, or if an EWG was blowing right on it.

It's not designed with a hole for a EWG return, but it should still be able to work.

I wouldn't recommend having a EWG blowing right on it. It will damage it over time.
