    I have to pull the intake manifold. I have never pulled the intake manifold before. Looks like I'll be learning some new tricks! The good news is (since it was tuned with the boost leak), there is no potential for damage to the motor. However, the crap idle and power loss is irritating. Not to mention the frequent misfire codes.

    This weekend I installed the PTP Turbo Blanket and further attempted to track down the massive boost leak haunting my motor.

    To start the Turbo Blanket install, I needed to remove the Cobb Heatshield:




    To completely remove the heatshield, you must remove your TMIC if you have installed a larger TMIC like I have. However, it is possible to install the turbo blanket without completely removing the heatshield. In my circumstance, the TMIC had already been removed to track down my boost leak

    Here is the PTP Turbo Blanket installed:




    And again with the Cobb heatshield installed over the Turbo Blanket:



    My impression of the Turbo Blanket:
    While I do not have a heat gun to accurately determine the difference in underhood temps before/after the blanket installation, I can actually TOUCH the heatshield after driving the car, something I could never have done before the blanket installation.

    Also, here is a picture of my "boost leak tester" in action:

    Hi there, just want to say cool build and I have one question, hopefully it's not a noob question; your valve-cover vents hoses seem to go over to the oil filler cap before they go into the intake; is this so you don't get oil in the intake? And how do I do this or where do I buy one of these?

    This is something I have noticed and have been wanting to "fix" for some time now.

    You're 75% correct! The cyl. head vents don't run to the oil cap, they run to my Oil Catch Can:



    This removes the oil blowby from the cylinder head vents. Though honestly, I haven't had a single drop of blowby since I installed the catch can. I do, however, have some amount of oil blowby from my PCV valve...

    Zax mah-man.

    You wrapped up your turbo twice, blanket, steel, added a catch can..etc.

    When you going to mod the battery? Looks like you are still rocking a factory battery. Shame, shame.. you need to step up your game.

    *had to say something stupid. I dig the build. I like the heat retention/prevention strategy you have going on in the turbo area. I might have to copy-cat a little.

    When turn the key in my car, the car starts. Beyond this, I see no reason to replace what is currently not broken. Incidentally, I also have no reason to believe that it is not the original battery. At the very least, I have not replaced the battery in the 6 years/60K miles in which I've owned the car.

    It's quite simple really. Heat is energy. Energy is good whilst in the Turbine. Energy is bad whilst in the ingested air. I try to keep as much of the heat IN the exhaust and OUT of the ingested air.
