How a Turbo Blanket Works - Exhaust Wrap Makes a Huge DifferenceCurious as to how a turbo blanket, which confines heat mostly to the turbo increases performance? Isnt the whole point to reduce turbo temperatures and not increase them with a heat shield or blanket. I would think that a heat sink or fan on the turbo would be more effective to " remove" heat. I know with my supercharged cars , I try to make the SC run as cool as possible.
A blanket may reduce overall underhood temps to the detriment of the actual turbo running hotter. I know when I run the car hard that I pop and prop the hood for an hour or so to let it all cool down , particularly in summer heat.
