The Perrin Turbo blanket fits snugly around the turbine housing of your turbo to keep nearly all radiant heat away from your intercooler, intake and other engine components and in the exhaust for a faster spooling turbo. As exhaust gases cool down they loose energy and velocity. The turbo blanket keeps hot exhaust gases hot, which in turn keeps the velocity of exhaust gases high, improving response while decreasing underhood temps.
The turbo blanket features 3 layers of construction: an outer cover made from silicone impregnated fiberglass, an inner layer made of calcium magnesium silicate insulation, and stainless steel mesh used to contain the inner layer. Stainless steel rivets are mounted to the blanket and stainless steel wire is supplied to secure the blanket to your turbo making installation a breeze.
- Fitment is guaranteed with OEM Subaru turbos only.
- Fits under OEM and Perrin heatshields.

I have been running a stage 2 pro tune for around 5 months without any heat protection. I bought this heat blanket and was amazed. I love how that it's authentic PTP with a Perrin design so it fits around the turbo perfectly. Install was extremely easy, you do not have to remove the turbo and it only took 5 minutes. The hardest thing was getting the wire tight, but the blanket comes with ample instructions...
I started my car and immediately noticed a difference. Before: when my car would idle for 5 minutes without any protection, my intercooler would be hot to the touch. With this blanket there is no heat soak into my intercooler...
One draw back would be the metal perrrin plate... I noticed that the heat blanket does a phenomenal job at keeping heat from soaking into my engine bay... But the metal plate is the Achilles heal of this design, it does allow some heat to soak through... But not nearly enough to say this is not worth the buy...
In all I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. This blanket is phenomenal!
Purchased the Perrin Turbo Blanket for the obvious reason of cooler air temps in the bay. Product works beyond what I imagined. After thirty minutes (and a warm up) of driving I was able to hold my hand on the blanket itself for nearly five seconds before I had to pull away.
I've debated on a heat shield as well but overall bay temp has been noticably cooler and I would highly recommend this product to anyone with an upgraded turbo set-up.
Installation was easy and directions were consise and accurate. Huge improvement and a prime example of the quality and and easy installation one can expect from Perrin products. A++
