That first picture surprises me. My intake runners feel like they're quite warm almost hot-ish after a long drive. That shows them to be warmer than the cool side of the intercooler but not as much as I thought they'd be. I've got some heat reflective material left over from the fairings for my CBR. I wonder if sticking that stuff to the underside of my intake runners would do much. I know it keeps my fairings from getting even a little bit warm, even by the headers so it's good stuff. hhhmmmmm.

The results are in!

temperature recap before PTP turbo blanket
TMIC 112 F
Heatshield 136 F
Turbo 350 F

did the same thing with the car before measuring the temps, idled WRX for 20 minutes after operating temp was reached. The outside temperature was 67 F this time instead of 70 F. All measurments were in the shade.

now here are the numbers with the PTP turbo blanket installed with the grimmspeed turbo heatshield.

TMIC 83 F


heatshield 90 F


turbo blanket 105 F

so the numbers just dont lie, this turbo blanket actually works as advertised, and I think the new numbers are fantastic. The turbo response between shifts is instant, and it delivers everything that PTP claims. Too bad they didnt do something similar to this test. The one they do with that miata with that laser sensor doesnt do it for me and isnt enough to sell me.

before -- after - difference
turbo-- 352 - 105 - 247
TMIC-- 112 - 83 - 29
heatshield-- 137 - 90 - 47


I can actually touch the heatshield while the car is running, which I think is amazing. I would imagine these results would be ballpark linear after some hot runs through the gears. I will try to get that done for you guys soon. If you are on the fence with buying a turbo blanket, this should push you over and the only regret that I have is that I went 8,100 miles without one.

Maybe call ptp and show them your studies. Maybe they'll use your info in exchange for a refund of what you paid, or another turbo blanket. Maybe even send you stuff in the future to experiment with.

A company like that, that doesn't have quick access to this sort of equipment is likely to be willing to help you if you help them sort of thing. Very professional.

Wow.... just wow!!!! that is amazing info!I have also heard of people putting a blanket, stock heat shield and aftermarket heat shield on all at the same time. I wonder how that would change things!

These finding need to be stickied somewhere. Really great news!

I've got the same heatshield and setup as you, this has motivated me to install the PTP blanket I've had sitting in my garage for 6 months.

Well done. I've been looking for this kind of info for a while. I agree the stuff on their website is a crappy demonstration and they should definitely use your info.

I purchased/installed one last week and defiantly noticed a difference. The throttle isnt spongy after long drives and the interior seems to be alot cooler now. Turbo spool is alot better, along with underhood tempertures being noticeable lower. If I hadnt seen this before, I would not have hesitated like I did to buy it. +1 Great writeup and excellent camera.

You talking about us or the turbo wrap guys? If us, what part is "crappy" as I'd like to make it better?

I'm gonna say the blanket guys. I have you're heat shield and although I didn't notice any drop in under hood temps it sure looks pretty and now that I HAVE to buy a blanket it will complete the package.

Are you guys buying directly from PTP? I plan on running the PTP blanket, stock heat shield, and SPT heatshield.

And we use to have threads/posters saying a heat shield is not needed....... LOL. I still see people pop their hoods all the time and see no heat shields at all.
