You can call them at 817-860-4300 and reference the "Kelly Deal" for the turbo blankets.
How do you know Brice ( Alamo )?? I get all my stuff from him.

I don't know him personally. I bought a turbo blanket for my Miata there a year and a half ago. I figured I would set something up for the guys here. From talking to him on a phone a couple times he seems like a nice guy.

Yeah, he is great. I get great deals from him, which includes the Greddy Turbo Kit I have on the Miata.

I'll try to remember this weekend... I'll take one for you, but I dont use the internal gate on mine. It's the potato turbine housing welded shut. You *might* have issues with the rod. It's pretty big on there.

Yup.....MKIII. We have a crew of 4 of us that all have boosted Vr6 MKIII's in my area.


Also the blanket fits over a 16g turbo with ease. Just made a little slit for the actuator rod. Works perfectly. It should fit all internally wastegated turbos with the same mod.

I imagine you'd have issues with an internal wastegate. This thing sits pretty snug over the housing.

You can see it pretty much fits down around the CHRA so I'm not sure where you'd run the WG actuator rod...

Thanks for the picture y8s.Does anyone else run one of these blankets with an internal wastegate? I would really like to know if it will work before I shellout that kind of money on this item.

Rob at Flipside is running one on his internally gated 16g. He just made a small slit for the actuator rod and it works fine. Even better is how cool his brake fluid reservoir stays now.
