DEI, a leading thermal control specialist for the automotive aftermarket, announced its new Ultra 47™ Turbo Shield.
The Ultra 47 is designed as an affordable turbo shield for either OEM or aftermarket T-3 (#010172) and T-4 (#010173) turbos.
DEI reports that the Ultra 47 turbo shield significantly decreases turbo lag and spool time for quicker power and increased torque.
“More heat is kept inside the turbo manifold increasing exhaust gas velocity for increased boost pressure,” a DEI spokesman reports.
“Reduced under the hood temperature also ensures cooler intake charges, adds protection of vacuum lines and wiring harness from excessive heat and improves radiator performance.”
A tri-layer material design uses advanced technology to better ensure that heat remains inside the turbocharger.
The outer shell is made of aluminum impregnated glass fiber with a high temperature insulating mat core and a silica glass blended interior liner.
The Ultra 47, which is made in the U.S., features double stitched seams and smooth capped anchor points.
The shield covers aftermarket turbos including Garrett, Precision, TIAL, Turbonetics or Borg-Warner.
The Ultra Shield Turbo Kit, also available for the T3 (#010174) and T4 (#010175) comes complete with one 2-inch x 15-foot roll of black thermal pipe wrap, two 20-inch stainless steel locking ties and 5 feet of fastening wire.
