Reduce the heat in the engine bay and boost the performance of your vehicle with this Thermal Turbo Blanket from SILA Concepts.
NOTE: some photos show this blanket in black, but this blanket is now only available in the "Titanium" finish (silver).
Installing a thermal blanket like this on your turbo charged vehicle is one of the most cost-effective power increasing modifications you can make. Remember, decreased temperatures under the hood mean better radiator performance, cooler intake charges, and extended life for things like wire harnesses, fittings and vacuum lines. You can also expect power and torque increases in addition to decreases in spool time of your turbo.
The theory behind this upgrade is rather simple. As you may already know heat is energy and gas will expand as it becomes hotter. The more heat you can keep inside the turbine housing the better. The heat that is retained in the turbine housing allows for more pressure to be directed through a turbine wheel which will improve the performance and increase the overall boost pressure while at the same time decrease the time it takes to build pressure.

Easy install. Not sure if it improves performance, but it does contain the heat and looks nice.
The installation was simple and the fit was perfect. I do not know how they can say it is reversible with the space got the oxygen sensor location? Looks cool, and keeps the engine compartment cool. I added the turbo management kit and together I can feel some increase in power and torque with smoother shifting without loosing power boost.
