Turbocharger heat shield and insulation

Here's a photo of the stainless heat shield we're manufacturing for the Garrett GT30R & GT35R (mid-frame size) ball bearing turbochargers:





TurboKraft does not stock the foil heat shields, we order them in as needed:



Optimal: formed inconel heat shields. Usually $500-600 expensive.




These look great at first, but they unfortunately just don't hold up on an air-cooled 911 Turbo. We fitted this one a basic 3.4L Turbo, and when the car came in for an oil change it was shedding, leaving a little spot of fibrous insulation on the floor.
