Sorry! I flat out didn't see your posts but I'm glad you're liking the blanket!Wow, I can actually feel a difference, and my EGT gauge notices one too. I'm surprised. I noticed that my turbo actually lights a hair faster. I have a tune that has a little lag just off the bottom, and I felt it cleaned up a bit and lit faster now. Very cool.
Any sense in trying to run a sock on the cold side pipe and/or hot side? I'd like to do up-pipes one day, but I cringe thinking about taking them off again! LOL.
I'm not sure that I've ever knowingly made a set of intake blankets. Not that I wouldn't. I just try to share my experiences so someone doesn't waste time/effort/money on something that might not work all that well.great advice, thanks. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remembered you making a set for the Elephant, but I didn't find any update as to effectiveness... should have been my first clue :roflmao:
I stand corrected. Completely forgot about that one. Nice internet ninja skills. :hug:found it. 4th post down - 4 foot turbo sock. https://www.duramaxdiesels.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70247
I could see that being true on the generation of truck Mike was working on. Those older square body frames are flimsy compared to what we have in our factory equipped duramax trucks.That’s true! Remember the motor mounts making the handling better He was cool. We exchanged a lot of emails and texts
He was a unique individual, I thought he was annoying until I met him in person then I realized yes a dually a cool dude, still weird though.That’s true! Remember the motor mounts making the handling better He was cool. We exchanged a lot of emails and texts
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 problemAnd you didn’t have to remove the turbo for the blanket?? I’d be interested in one for my LBZ
Never mind I just checked out the guys website looks like they’re held in with ties

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