    I actually got my stock heat shield over top the PTP turbo blanket, for what it is worth. I am sure I am hitting diminishing returns at that point, but I figured it can't hurt much.

    hmmm, looking at this I need to go out and look and mine and make sure I did it correctly. I'm pretty sure I did. I've done all of my installations and I think i'm making it more difficult than it has to be lol.

    As long as it is around the turbo there.... I think you'll be okay. Just has to keep from falling off. It's just an insulator.

    If PTP had a thermal blanket for the downpipe I would have used that as well. I did follow the Perrin suggested instructions for wrapping the wire on their blanket for my PTP. Seems very secure with no movement.

    Sidenote, looking at the photo above, Jason from Nameless Performance suggested to me that you should not wrap your downpipe with exhaust wrap if you drive where there is heavy rain or salt on roadways. He said the water/salt gets into the material and stays trapped causing permature corrision of the pipe. Even though most vendors use top brand Stainless Steel they are not indestructable! Better to leave an air gap between the pipe and exhuast shielding (aluminum or blanket) to allow excess water/salt to evaporate. Granted the thermal wrap adds great heat protection. The other methods allows for longer life of your exhaust.
    like ceramic coating?


    I live in California... so I dunno what rain and snow are... :shrug: :P But chances are I'd replace the turbo before any corrosion happens.

    As long as it doesn't fall off and the 'cut-outs' aren't impeding the actuator, it should be fine. I have mine held on w/ stainless steel wire.
