Congrats on your upcoming repair, sounds like it will be done with the right parts. Turbo blanket is to keep hot side hot and the engine bay cooler. The more heated the hot side the quicker the flow out to the exhaust. I had one on my K04. Meh. Blankets and wrapping get moisture under them and cause corrosion over time. The preferred thing is to get the turbo coated. Now would be a good time to send your turbo out for a rebuild, not terribly expensive and at the same time have it ceramic coated.Noted thank you!
they weren’t too costly but yeah rather save for a clutch that’ll need to get replaced eventually.
finally tho got an update from the dealer after 2.5 months……..
Getting a new remanufactured engined from Germany timeline unknown (due to covid, bs). Replacing the engine mounts, long block, & hardware.
Wanted to ask if anyone added a heating cover to their k04 turbo to keep it slightly cooler? Worth doing it while the engine is apart?
