SAF_Zoom Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 There is two new products out used by guys that race RX-7.*Its called DEI titanium exhaust wrap and the DEI titanium turbo sheild. As most guys can't seem to keep those rotary exhaust cool, you may want to research these products further. You can find it here. http://www.designengineering.com/index.asp Here are the comments from a guys that race with the aforementioned. Last but not least. DEI just released a new turbo blanket. I've seen a lot of these through the years and they were all junk to be honest. Hard to install, looked like crap, couldn't really re-use them after removing them once etc. This new product from DEI is just flat out SWEET! It is perfectly formed and sewn to fit the T3 housings. The material is actually made of Lava rock and there is an inner padding/insulation that is made of silica and has a temperature rating of 2,000 degrees F. The turbo blanket has three heavy duty metal bosses embedded in the material so you can safety wire the blanket to the turbo. The install, seriously took me 3 minutes, including twisting the SS wire with the safety wire pliers. I did the dyno pull, Trent stood in front of the car with the laser heat gun. Immediately following the pull he took a temperature reading of the turbine housing, 693 degrees F. The turbine housing, obviously at that temperature was so hot it instantly burns you. I worked on the car that hot. Right after it was installed I ran the car again, identical dyno run. Trent took another temperature reading and at the end of the pull the outside of the blanket was only 260 degrees. That's a drop of 433 degrees. After a few minutes of Trent and I talking about the results he happened to hit it again, the temp had already dropped to 130 degrees. I told him, "If that's right I should be able to touch it and not get burnt." I took the plunge, it was correct. I could lay my hand on the blanket no problem. This is huge for heat control under the hood. That is a lot of heat gone from the engine bay. DEI is releasing a complete kit that will include the turbine housing blanket, a 2"x15' long roll of titanium wrap (made of the same lava material), ss wire ties for the wrap and safety wire for the blanket. This kit and the turbo blanket by itself will be available next month. Anyone interested we are going to offer both the blanket and the kit at 20% off for pre-orders. The blanket alone is $230 retail, it will be $184 for this introduction. The entire kit is $251 retail and will be $200. It may be what the doctor ordered for some of you......
