Q. My turbo shield is smoking after it is installed, will it catch on fire?
A. No, smoking is normal. the material used are non combustible and the smoke you see are binder burning off from the textiles used, this is completely normal. The smoking will stop after a short period of time. It can last as little as a few minutes to a few days, it depends on how hot your turbo gets.
Q. I have installed my turbo shield, but i still can't touch my turbo is it not working?
A. Yes the shield is functioning just fine. The shield reduces the amount of radiant heat, but it can't always knock the temperature down to where it is safe to the touch. For example, say your turbo is running at 1000°F, and you were able to knock the temperature down to 500°F, you certainly wouldn't put your hand in an oven at 500°F, so please don't touch the turbo shield either!
