Gold Turbo Shield
Gold Turbo Heat Shield with RugGold™ Technology
Capable of reducing up to 60% of under hood heat
Does not conduct heat like all metal turbo shields
Reduces turbo lag, lowers under hood temperatures
Custom fit installs in minutes
Custom shields available, will require housing to make prototype
Made in the USA
In addition to lowering underhood temperatures it also increases the exhaust gas temperatures. Higher EGT’s allow the turbine wheel to spin faster. The retained heat also keeps the turbo spooled up, this is extremely helpful when pedaling down the track or launching quicker out of a corner.
You can keep your Gold Turbo Shield looking like new by using a diluted cleaner solution like Simple Green. Simply wipe on and wipe off dry. Installation is easy with the custom fit and included stainless steel springs.

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!
