Default Turbo Blanket for $75-Final stage! ETA inside

As title says, $75 turbo blankets.

If you don't know what a turbo blanket is, click here.

A blanket serves two purposes.
1. keeps underhood temps lower, so you don't melt your ****.
2. keeps the heat in the turbo, which in return helps keep the exhaust velocity higher giving you better efficiency out of your system. More power, better response, less lag.

All of you who are interested, post in here and if enough people are in we can get these for $75 ea. They usually go for around $120-$150ish or so.
Update: We have close to enough people, I went through with the GB and bought 50 units. (min. required)
I am getting them in two batches, 25 blankets in each batch, one pretty much any day now and the other in 2-3 weeks, so do not be surprised by a small wait.
Which batch are you in is up to me, sorry, you can not bitch and moan about it. However, I do not discriminate (well maybe a little) I am trying to combine shipping for as many people as possible so you ******* save even more money.
If you have a problem with that, I am sure one of the mods would just love for you to go cry to them about it. bwahahaha!!!

I was just about to get a black one through Alamo that looks like y8s (which is exactly what I want):


Do you have any product pictures? And how soon can we get them?

I'll talk to the guy and see if we can stretch it out over time, kind of like the godspeed radiator deal. We still need mroe people to get that price though...so keep them comming. Can we make all the noobs buy one? As a requirement to stay? lol
We have 6 people interested so far.

Count me in as well. [email protected] was promising one too but never came through.

So you can have my 75 whenever you want it.

Any product pics? Warranty?

The blankets will fit most turbos up to T4 housing, but no one here has to worry about that I am sure. I think most people are ok here with our tiny turbozers.
They are offered in two colors, black and gray as pictured in above post, I think it would be best if we all agreed on only one color to make things easier for me when negotiating the final deal.
My goal is to help everyone save a few bucks wherever I can, I am even considering buying all of them and then selling them individually myself to make things furthermore easier for the seller in order to get the best deal...

PS-I will try to make it to the gap even if my car is not running, so anyone going there may chose to have me bring the blankets there and we can have a group install

You can have any color as long as it's black, haha.

Yeah, if that's the correct dates, then yeah I can make that, I just don't think my car will be anywhere near ready by then, I don't have time to do anything right now (see my sig :( )

Sounds good to me...I think I will go that route.
Someone go post on CRnet and Mnet asking about turbo blankets and then I will come in and link this page, we will spambot them. They don't allow GB's over there unless you are a sponsor.
