Our Lava Wastegate Heat Shield is a specially designed thermal barrier to protect the turbocharger wastegate actuator and its critical internal components from the excessive heat exposure it’s subjected to from the exhaust side of the turbo. Protecting the wastegate from heat exposure increases the wastegate diaphragm life, and more consistent actuation of the wastegate by insulating the diaphragm from constant and extreme temperature changes that affect how quickly the wastegate opens and closes. 

The business end of this heat shield is made our proprietary Inferno Mat. This special high-temperature silica insulation can withstand constant temperatures of 1800 F and intermittent temperatures of 2200 F. It remains flexible and strong at even at sustain temperatures of 1800 F. We use our Lava Shield as the outer layer to both give it that cool carbon fiber look and while adding another layer of insulation performance.

Installation is easy, in most cases not requiring removal of the wastegate, and can be uninstalled and reinstalled even after countless heat cycles. Each turbo wastegate heat shield includes wire for the capstan fastener.
