Well it sounds like I may have 5 spoken for already since Flipside is doing a twin turbo E36 M3 and will be needing two for that alone.

From what I've read from Corky, insulating the turbo housing leads to improved efficiency and lower under-hood temps. He uses turbine heat shields on all his kits. If I wasn't so cheap I'd rock one.

I may have been wrong on what Corky said about them. Put me down for one.

BTW, any way we can get the measurement on that (i.e. the center section strip is 5"x10" or something)

No problem. I will try and get exact dimensions. They may just be a hair loose on some of the really small turbos but you sould be able to wire them on pretty tight. Here is a close up shot of the one I had on my old setup. It was a T3 60 trim for those who don't remember.

How do you guys feel about ordering at the end of next week? I will just call Alamo ahead of time to give them a heads up. Then you guys can just call them and place the order and reference the "Kelly Deal"
