Never mind I just checked out the guys website looks like they’re held in with ties

They work great I just installed mine on my 68 valley charger and on my s480. The blanket on the stock charger is held on with stainless ties. I bought them to help keep the underhood temps down, after a hard run I can pop the hood and lay my hand on the blankets with no problem

Levi - do you think that I can install your up-pipe blankets without pulling the up-pipes? The EGR riser is cut off. TIA! Wally

Is your transmission out? I installed mine with the up-pipes installed but my downpipe or trans was out.



If your downpipe was out but everything else was in you COULD do it but man it would be terrible and take way way longer than it should. The drivers side is the biggest nightmare when the trans is installed due to the lack of access compared to the passenger side.

Of course it's in, LOL. I did my turbo several years ago too, and I remember it was a PITA to pull the up-pipes. If the answer is that it's doable with some difficulty if I pull just the downpipe for some added room, I'll do it! But if there's no way around having to pull the up-pipes, then I'm out! LOL.

The drivers side will the the one that is hardest due to the power steering shaft/hoses/wiring etc all being in your way to reach in there as well as the turbo pedestal/mount. I wouldn't guarantee anything but I would imagine with time and a few cases of beer you could get it done.

Pretty much what Brad said. I've had several customers say they've installed the blankets without removing the pipes or trans. Either by pulling the downpipe or it was a twin'd truck. They did not speak fondly of the experience but they were able to get it done in the end.

Ugh. LOL. If only I could train underpants gnomes to crawl back there. Blast their tiny arms and hands.

I'll order the blankets and buy some beer. Thanks for the advice and the upcoming "I told you so".
