In a recent blog on thermal barriers and turbo systems, we talked about the different areas where thermal barriers can be employed when installing a turbocharger system to increase turbo performance, while at the same time reducing the effects of increased ambient heat on components near the turbo feed and exhaust piping.
Following up on that, we thought it would be useful to share a recent story covering the installation of Turbonetics 50-state legal turbocharger system for the 2010-2015 5th Gen Camaro SS equipped with the LS3 that will be published in an upcoming issue of Car Craft magazine. In the story, you can see applications of various thermal barriers from Heatshield Products on the different parts of the turbocharger system, and the benefits they provide, along with how to actually install them. Even if you’re not installing a turbo on your car, some of the heat-damping products illustrated can still be beneficial to your vehicle as well as help reduce wear on underhood and undercar components, especially if you’re installing long-tube headers and an exhaust system.

The story also provides links to purchase any thermal-barrier products from Heatshield Products that catch your eye for upcoming installs or projects you might have on your to-do-list.
