Forecast?



Low intake temps from now on.











Before the blanky.....









After the blanky... look how cozy it is.









I just have to get some of the safety wife out from my Karting tool box and tighten it up.



Just in time for the Autocross at Moroso Sunday.

Thats is a good question... How much better is the heat bag compared to just a heat shield.. I would think that the bag would trap a lot more heat then a shield...

kinda the purpose... prevent the intake runners as well as the surrounding areas from the heat generated by the turbo..

the concern ive got is condensation with those blankies...

LOL!! I think the turbo will be toast before rust will consume it.



That blanket gets so hot I doubt any condensation forms, its probably over 1000 inside there. No room for moisture.





If I get 3 years out of this turbo I will be happy. By then a newer better turbo will be the hot item and I will be heading for it.



My T-04E lasted 4 years, if I get 4 years out of this GT35R I will be very happy.



The heat reduction is dramatic under the hood EVERYTHING is cooler, best $150 I have spent on this car.

Thanks.



I tried one of those underdrive belt / pulley setups and my water pump was slipping, that was one of the reasons I destroyed my engine last time around at a track day.
