Default Blankets for baby snails (T2)

What turbo blankets are you guys running for tiny turbos? I'm talking 2554 small. I can Google, and did, but the hivemind usually has a better recommendation.

I searched here and all I got was pictures of cats in blankets, but I'm not complaining.

You don't use turbo blankets.

1: Because you don't need it.

2: Because this chick is holding up a My Little Pony doll:



3: Because you really don't need it.

4: Because racecar.

5: Because, seriously, it really doesn't offer any benefit at all.

6: Because it looks like what started as a joke is actually going to turn into a presidential campaign.



7: Because just don't.

8: Because God hates figs.


(I mean, they're tasty, but kind of a pain in the *** to peel.)

9: Because just don't.

There are several other threads that talk about turbo blankets and the issues with them if you search enough.

Did some more searching, saw why everyone is against them. Still gonna run one cause I'm stubborn and my turbo is already beat. I'll be sure to post pics when it disintegrates.

In for carnage. Be sure to loosen the oil line just enough to allow the blanket to wick.

A large number of comments will be "show me your ****."

But that's like entry-level troll stuff. This is literally the opposite of a rape-threat. I'll have you know, sir, that I am quite rapeable.


Listen, Olga. If you're not getting a lot of opportunities then your channel will disappear in the next two years. Unless you go back to basics and spread your legs.

That is an oddly specific reference...

Good luck.



Not with your car, with the images. It'll be hard since you no longer have access to add your **** to this resource.

For those who don't have time to watch basically they have several benefits. The main benefit is decreasing the heat around the turbocharger itself. A secondary benefit (to a MUCH lesser extent) can be performance gains that have been measured in several tests not shown in the video. That being said they are not big enough performance gains to make the turbo blanket worth it if you are strictly looking for performance.

So are they worth it? If you are going strictly for performance gains then no. Are they worth it for the other benefits? They very well could be based on your intentions.

Not sure why the dude got flamed so hard for the question.
