Review & Install Video
Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the T3 Carbon Fiber Turbo Blanket fitting the 1979 through current Mustang. So in this video I'm gonna talk about who this is going to appeal to, the materials used with this cover. And then lastly we're gonna hit the installation which, right off the bat, I'm going to be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the Difficulty Meter, and you should have this on your car in about five to ten minutes flat.
So if you're the owner of an S550 EcoBoost or even a turbo charged two, three, or four valve Mustang and you're looking to add a little bit of extra flair under the hood of your car or, more importantly, keep your under-hood temperatures down, I would definitely suggest checking out this part. So with this Turbo Blanket not only are you going to be protecting the underside of your hood as well as your strut tower area, or any type of painted surface as well as silicone hoses or anything you have going on, you're actually going to be improving your turbo spool time as well as decreasing the turbo lag.
So taking a look at the construction here, it's evident right out of the bat and right out of the box that this is definitely carbon fiber. Now, you can rest easy knowing that you're not gonna have to pay an arm and a leg for this, which I'll hit on later, as carbon fiber parts can typically be very costly. So this is gonna be coming with stainless steel hooks on either side right here, as well as the supplied springs, which are gonna help pull this around your turbo. This is gonna be great for not only the ease of installation but in the event that you have to take this off to inspect your turbo, you can do so on the fly.
All right, guys, so getting down to brass tacks here, we're gonna see that this blanket's gonna be able to accommodate up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit as well as intermittent bursts of up to 2,800 degrees. So you can rest easy knowing that this is going to be able to withstand the very high temperatures that your turbo is going to be putting out. All right, so I do want to add that this turbo blanket is going to be able to accommodate a very wide variety of turbo sizes, but definitely check out the website just to make sure that you're gonna have the size there for your turbo that's on your car.
All right, so taking a look at the pricing here, you should expect to be spending right around $130 which, in my opinion, is definitely where you're gonna see most, if not all, turbo blankets fall in line. Again, for that cost, you're gonna be getting real carbon fiber parts here that's going to protect your engine bay. So just to hit this home again here, for the money, you're gonna be getting real carbon fiber parts and something that's going to be improving your turbo spool, decreasing turbo lag, as well as protecting the underside of your hood, as well as any type of silicone hoses.
All right, so taking a look at the installation here, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, this is going to be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the Difficulty Meter and you should have this wrapped around your turbo in about five to ten minutes flat. Now, this is definitely a huge selling point for me, as this is essentially going to wrap right around your turbo or your aftermarket turbo if you're running a two, three, or four valve, and it's going to secure with these supplied springs. Now, one thing I would add is that it's definitely a good idea to make sure that your car is cold, just to ensure you're not gonna be burning yourself getting this on.
All right, guys, just to wrap things up here, a couple thoughts. I definitely like this option not only because you're gonna be adding a little bit of extra flair but for the fact that for your S550 EcoBoost, you're going to be decreasing your turbo lag, improving your spool, as well as keeping your under-hood temperatures down. So that's my review and breakdown for the T3 Carbon Fiber Turbo Blanket fitting the 1979 through current Mustang, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
