Maximize efficiency, reduce turbo lag and keep underhood temps down! That’s exactly what you’ll get with our in-house developed ECS Tuning “HeatShield” Turbo Blanket! Made specifically for the transverse 1.8T K03 and K04 OEM-based turbochargers, this blanket fits like a glove!
The sole purpose of insulating the turbine housing (exhaust driven impeller) of your turbocharger is to contain the massive amounts of radiant heat that are expelled by the super hot exhaust gasses within. By containing the heat within the turbine housing, overall engine efficiency is improved and component life can be extended to other nearby parts.
Expect lower intake air temps than before as the associated induction parts are no longer being heat soaked to such a high degree by the hot turbocharger.
Turbocharger response time is also improved (less turbo lag) as the heat energy is contained within the turbine housing. By containing all the heat energy within the turbine housing, this creates more pressure, more pressure is more energy, more energy available to spin the turbocharger faster in the lower RPM range!
Made right here in the U.S.A. by a world leader in turbo blanket technologies and manufacturing. The exterior layer is crafted from heat-treated fiberglass, then bonded with molten aluminum and then molded into a tight weave per our specifications for added resiliency. The inner layer is made from a high-temperature-resistant Silica that is good for temps up to 1,350° F!
Stainless steel mounting anchors along with the included stainless steel wire tie secure the assembly into position for long lasting, durable operation.
