And what I mean by tuning for he manifold is to make sure you do t get a check engine light on due to the flapper delete, and cold start issues.

I see you're in conn so the turbo blanket may not be as effective vs my brutal Florida heat but reducing underhood temps I think would work on any climate. Especially since the intake tube goes behind the head/ right above the turbo. Heat radiating up from the turbo goes right up to the intake.

I waited till I got everything on sale so it was like all the ceramic coatings and machine work were free compared to paying normal price for the hardware
Oh the aftermarket intake...that makes more sense then obviously. I would've thought they already came all done without casting marks...for 900.00 or so, it doesn't make sense not to.
