You will see Turbo Insulation Shields on nearly all professional racecars with turbocharged engines. Why? Because they help to increase engine performance and protect against the damaging effects of radiant heat.
Exhaust gasses power the turbo spindle; the higher the performance of the engine, the hotter the exhaust temperatures will be. In fact, if you were to open the engine compartment of any high-performance vehicle after it has been driven hard, you’d see a glowing red exhaust-side turbocharger housing.
To avoid damage and sustain optimum performance, it is important to protect the rest of the engine from the 1200 F°+ temperatures that radiate from the Turbo. Covering the turbo housing will also promote cool air intake that translates to increased horsepower!
To do it right, the exhaust housing must be covered with a heat restrictive material.
