Why use a Turbo or Manifold Heat Blanket on your Mazdaspeed? Three main reasons and they all focus around heat control. Heat is good and bad depending on where that heat is going. A manifold blanket will protect surrounding components from excessive heat comping from the manifold. The exhaust manifold blanket protects components like your Top Mount Intercooler, silicone couplers, fire wall and the wiring/plumbing hidden behind it as well and electrical components like your alternator. In the opposite of that, the manifold blanket will retain that heat in the manifold where it will help use that heat energy to improve turbo spool and response. Yes, exhaust heat, pressure and flow are what actually spool the turbine inside. Lastly, and specifically about heat control. The excess heat is better kept from the turbocharger compressor side “the cold side” and this again helps with spool and response. Knowing this, CorkSport worked with PTP Turbo Blankets, a leader in Turbo & Manifold Heat Control Blankets, to develop a custom fitment specific to the CorkSport Cast SS Exhaust Manifold.
The CorkSport Exhaust Manifold Blanket has an outer material made of volcanic lava rock that is manufactured into a fabric which has a rated direct contact temperature of 1800°F and can withstand radiant heat temperatures up to 2500°F. The CS Exhaust Manifold Blanket also features an internal layer of calcium magnesium silicate wool that works as an insulator that can withstand continuous temperatures of 1832°F and peak temperatures of 2300°F. This inner insulating layer is covered with high temp stainless steel mesh to further improve durability and makes sure the CS Exhaust Manifold Blanket can hold up in the most demanding situations.
For the design of the CS Exhaust Manifold Blanket we focused on fitment and ease of installation. These two areas are crucial because it determines how good the exhaust manifold blanket will perform. The CS Exhaust Manifold Blanket was designed so that it covers the exhaust manifold completely while providing a tight fit to provide the best insulation performance. We have also designed a separate blanket for the elbow that comes off of the manifold to further reduce the amount of heat loss before the turbo. For installation the blanket comes equipped with stainless steel springs that hold the blanket tight to the manifold so the installation of the blanket is made quick and can be easily done on car. This also applies to the removal of the blanket so you don’t have to bother with undoing wire if you ever need to take off the blanket to access the manifold.
It will take you 45 minutes to install.
