  1. Exhaust Gas Temps, Turbos, Turbo Shields and Making Power

    ABOVE: An unshielded turbo means you’re leaving a lot of horsepower and turbo efficiency on the table. Increased turbo lag, lower max boost and increased underhood heat are all negative effects of an unshielded turbocharger.

    You’ll see us talking up using Heatshield Products exhaust wrap and/or insulation to keep more heat in your exhaust system for multiple reasons. First is to cut down on the amount of heat the exhaust system radiates, which can increase underhood temperatures and interior heat; the exhaust pipes running under the floor will heat the floor and transmit that heat into the passenger cabin. Second, keeping more heat in the exhaust system helps increase performance, especially in turbocharged applications. You

  2. Making an Intercooler Even Cooler with Heatshield Products

    Adding boost is popular in the performance world. However, heat happens when air is compressed by either a turbo or supercharger. And hot air is not good for making power. That’s why many turbo and blower systems have an intercooler to cool the compressed air before it enters the engine. If your intercooler is a water-to-air type with a reservoir tank, we’ll show you how to keep it even cooler for increased engine power.


    Heatshield Products Sticky Heat Shield acts as a barrier to deflect ambient heat away from the tank. Its specially formulated Kool Core™ thermal-barrier material helps to insulate the intercooler temperature of the tank, keeping the ice and water inside the tank cooler for a longer period of time than an unprotected tank. HP Sticky Shield™ has a built-in adhesive backing, so installation to make a custom intercooler is super easy. Here’s
