How many problems are u guys having with the engine heat from the turbos and whats your solution.
The heat is what helps spool the turbo, the more the better really.i've been told u shouldn't wrap the hotside by ON3 and B&G cause it holds heat.
What type of coating do you have that you were comfortable with it on the inside?coated (inside and out), wrapped with dei titanium wrap, and some ebay turbo blanket.
not much higher than my novi2000 although i do regret not doing a before and after the wrap test as it made a huge difference in temps and spool (it was never an issue but saw a difference)
Wrapping the headers isn't a good idea, will void the warranty.I am planning on coating AND wrapping my headers, cross over and DP. I picked up a titanium turbo blanket from DEI and will be selling off my DEI Black wrap (NIB) to fund titanium wrap to match. I am running a BG kit and with the few miles the car will see I am not too worried about header cracks.
That should help keep the heat at bay. But as a precaution anything wire or hose type near the exhaust is covered in DEI heat sleeve. Pretty cool and flexible stuff; supposed to protect from direct contact heat up to 3000*.
I am not concerned with warranty. I am more concerned with cooking everything under the hood. The car is nothing but a street car and leaving me stranded somewhere is worse than a pin hole or crack in the headers.Wrapping the headers isn't a good idea, will void the warranty.
After 2.5 years and 125+ passes with 10 true street events and street driving I had some cracking on one header. Brian fixed it and had it back to me in less then a week but put me on a mission to get more heat out from under hood.
Wrap would have made this worse.
However, I am really hard on parts, you would never have that happen in a milder street car.
I will check out the DEI wrap for wiring. Thanks for that note.
