    That's just pure filth! Drool! Love how even the box is so nicely sorted.

    I think the blanket will improve things a bit. How much, that I am not sure but it can't hurt the performance :)

    Can't see why it would need a tweek map Ciaran.

    It's only a heat shield at the end of the day like the standard one.

    I'm going for one soon on my track car, if your not going to use it give me a buzz
    as Marcus Gronholm once said "up the arse of timo"...

    Probually the only bad point is it won't let the heat of the turbo itself get dispersed, but will keep the temps in the engine bay down a tad.
    Had a turbo, WRX , STI , 2 WR1s and a legacy B4

    I have one on my car. There are two areas that you gain

    1. The heat coming of the turbine housing as you know is a lot. By adding the blanket you are keeping a lot of that heat away from parts like intercooler and rubber pipes. The compressor housing I found stays cooler. My big issue was intercooler. I run the top mount and found that the IC would get hot on the turbo side when parked off. With the blanket it has taken away a lot of that heat, not all but a massive difference.

    2. By holding the heat it helps with turbo spool, so keeping the turbine hot and not letting the heat escape is a good thing. More heat more energy.

    You diffidently do not need to map the car. My advise if you have it use it. However its not the easiest thing to fit.
