Reduce Turbo Lag And Excessive Turbo Heat

Published in the June 2013 Issue June 2013 Products

DEI’s GEN-II Turbo ShieldTurbochargers and other bolt-on modifications can generate excessive radiant and direct heat and too much heat can greatly compromise engine efficiency. Turbochargers have been known to bake paint off hoods, melt electrical wiring, oil feeds and return lines.

Design Engineering (DEI), a top manufacturer of high performance thermal control products, has the solution—GEN-II Turbo Shield with LR Technology designed to be a custom fit for all T3, T4, T6 and T25/28 turbochargers.

Constructed from pulverized lava rock, extruded into fibers and then woven into a tight weave, this material has titanium-like strength and durability. A high temperature rated silica fireproof insulation padding serves as added protection to handle direct continuous heat up to 1800 degrees and up to 2500 degrees of radiant heat. The GEN-II Titanium Turbo Shield has an upgraded, thicker, fireproof core and a special high-temp material to protect and reinforce seams vulnerable to higher heat, produced from higher horsepower turbos. DEI’s GEN-II Turbo Shield can be purchased separately or as a kit.
