Funk Motorsport's latest addition to the modest Funk Cool range is a product that we are very proud to be able to finally bring to the market.

In development for the last few months, our very own turbo blankets are available in 2 subtle and stylish variations.











And a picture of a blanket fitted..



Titanium Lava Rock Weave and Carbon weave.

Due to the close proximity between the two halves of the turbo, it is very common to provide heat sink from one half to the other. This can provide a lacking performance and make the intake components work harder during the combustion cycle.Turbo blankets are designed to keep the hot side of your turbo HOT and the cold side cold. This will inevitably provide cooler airflow to the intercooler/charge coolers and in turn cooler air (at a lower pressure) to the MAF - increasing ignition spark and combustion energy. By ensuring the turbine half will continue to remain hot without dissipating this flow into the surrounding atmosphere (engine bay), the exhaust gasses will flow faster with less turbulence out of the exhaust, this is a very similar concept to wrapping an exhaust with our Funk Cool Titanium Lava Rock Wrap (which will also compliment a turbo blanket very nicely).

Each blanket has been stitched with great care and precision with the highest quality materials. Many online replications may look very similar, though are constructed using a far lower rated material. These may only be suitable for very standard applications - in which case, heat sinking and dissipation is not an issue. These blankets are internally insulated with high temperature calcium magnesium silicate wool for increased durability for improved durability and for improved thermal resistance.*

Our Funk Cool turbo blankets include a high tensile locking spring system - these ensure that a snug fit will remain around your turbo and reduce play over time. The blanket is easy to fit over your turbo and should take no longer than a few minutes to fit (subject to access).

Typical applications for the T25 exhaust Blanket (But not limited to), these are generally small to medium sized turbo applications:
T25
TD04
TD05
GT2560R
T25G
GT2254R
GT3076R
T28
GT25
GT30
GT32
GT35
GT37
Please note that models:*GT2554R, GT2560R, GT2854R, GT2860R, GT2860RS, GT2871R, GT2876R, GT3071R-WG, GT3076R-WG may require some modification to the blanket to ensure a keen fit.

Typical applications for the T4 exhaust Blanket (But not limited to), these are generally larger and perhaps a modified turbo application:

T4
GT35R
GT37R
GT40
GT42
GT45
GT46
GT47
Borg-Warner s300
Borg-Warner s366
Borg-Warnet s400
6266

T25

Unsure if it will fit your application? Feel free to send us your dimensions and we will be happy to help you find the correct blanket for you.

Note of caution:
This turbo blanket is not flammable. However if any flammable fluids are introduced into close proximity of the blanket, the blanket could become a suitable ignition source for a flame to be produced. Please ensure that all necessary precautions are taken in regards to the appropriate maintenance of all oil and fuel lines and fittings surrounding the turbo charging and fuel injection system. Funk Motorsport take no responsibility for fluid contamination our products.

Whilst this heat shield is removable after fitment, it is not designed to be removed once a number of heat cycles has been introduced into the product. After the blankets have been heated they will lose some of their internal construction properties, though we must stress that this does not reduce any thermal properties of the product.

I Like those blankets.
Do you also have for FP Black (MHI Cast Housing)?

Hey ads,
With a fair amount of research, I can pretty confidently say that the T25 blanket example should be a suitable fit for your requirements.

Check your PM.

How do these fit over, are there cut outs for oil delivery and return pipes?
Hi Ben,
These are designed to only cover the "hot side", this means that the oil lines in which you are concerned about will happily sit next to the oil lines already in place.

How do these affect the internal temperature of the turbo core?
Been told to be careful of fitting turbo blankets to some turbo's as it can cause core failure

Whats your opinion of this?

Hi Rob,

We get this point of view a lot come our way.

Simply put, if you are warming up and cooling down the turbo in the correct manor, as you should do with any high performance vehicle, turbo blankets should not interrupt the operation and life span of your turbo.

Many who blame turbo blankets for damage caused to the turbo - typically have rushed the cool down procedure and killed the engine shortly after any driving, particularly "spirited driving".

We hope that this answers your question Rob.

Best regards

I have been told the damage is from core of the turbo being hotter whilst the car is running. Nothing to do with warm up or cool down time.

Have you done any temp testing data whilst having a car running with and without a blanket to show turbo core temp?

Also what was the engine bay temp differences of a car with and without one fitted

Hi Rob,

No matter how much logging that can take place. It cannot prove when exactly any damage is caused. Despite **some** applications running a hotter "core", the damage can and usually is caused by poor Cool down procedures.

As for answering "how much can this reduce bay temps", that will vary on each application. Some turbos will run hotter than others naturally, and therefore cause a hotter engine bay. These variations can also include the free space in the engine bay as well as the cooling capabilities into the bay itself. This is why it is unwise to release any "official" figures for this reason, due to each car and turbo set up will create large changes in temperatures.

Hope this somewhat helps :)

Best regards,
Ryan
