Anyone Using A Turbo Blanket?

Just wanted to ask if it helps any. And would it be worth the $80?

You can get them from eBay for a little over $40, I just bought one for my turbo Mustang.

That's where I saw a few. I just wanted to see if anyone was using 1 in there truck. In theory it should make a difference but is it worth the price

I have thought of one, but just for the fact that the CX racing intercooling tubing comes so close to the exhaust.

The only downside I can see of it being on a daily driver is a higher chance of cooking oil in the turbo after shutdown by holding in the heat.

I think there is a thread on this in the 7.3 aftermarket section of PSA, just FYI.

yeah, I have one, just haven't installed yet because of how hard it is to put on.
