Turbo Blankets are designed for your high performance car with a number of positive attributes in mind. So, what are the benefits of turbo blanket? With the turbine housing of a turbo reaching maximum temperatures of around 700°C, this can cause issues for all turbocharged vehicles, OEM or Modified, Race Car or Road Car.
A Funk Motorsport turbo blanket can help to:
– Reduce Air Intake Temperatures, resulting in higher performance and more consistent performance figures.
– Improve spool up times of your turbo.
– Lower Engine bay temperatures.
– Improve reliability of surrounding components in the engine bay
Whilst the new Funk Motorsport Mk3 turbo blanket offers the same benefits as our previous turbo jackets, the next iteration offers all new technology, unseen in the automotive aftermarket.
In development for the past 12 months, Funk Motorsport have produced a turbo blanket that is more durable and outperforms any other on the market. We have looked closely at each component of our turbo wrap and have provided upgrades in every area.
Each Mk3 turbo blanket has had extensive improvements to the following areas:
– Specifically developed thread construction to allow for exceptional durability when removal is absolutely necessary. Our new fireproof ultra-high temperature Stainless Steel thread is around 1mm in diameter and can now remain highly durable with temperatures in excess of 1300°C.
– New, thicker internal heat lagging insulation to provide up to 3x improved heat reduction. This insulation wool is created from a ceramic silica complex matting to improve durability over prolonged heat cycles, as well as insulation quantities.
– 4-layer construction for improved reliability
– Uprated external Carbon Fibre twill and Titanium twill for an improved aesthetic and more durable finish.
– ROHS tested and approved to ensure compliance and desired parameters are reached within our material selection.
– New style Funk Motorsport emblem for safer handling qualities.
You could say that our Mk3. Turbo Jacket is an entirely new product, and in fact, you are 100% correct. Each area has been improved to create the best heat insulation for a turbo in the world!
Turbo Jackets (or turbo beanies) are a necessary improvement for all cars using a standard turbo or an aftermarket performance turbo.
Turbo shields work by keeping the heat contained within the exhaust gases, actually helping to accelerate the gas. This acceleration can aid spool up time as well as remove the heat energy from the system – faster!
Our clients range from small turbo hatchbacks, up to huge drag race applications, and everything in between. Our heat shield insulation products can be found within the various famous project constructors; The Hoonigans, BMR BTCC team, European RX athletes, Luke Woodham – Gymkhana GRID champion, Duane Mckeever – British and Irish drift champion and many more!
Check out our all new jacket in use! Fitted to an R34 Skyline, tested on a dyno!
Our turbo blankets are available in both Titanium and Carbon Fibre finishes. Both variations perform to the same high standards, it is only the final top fabric which is different. This plays no role in its heat properties.

Since a Turbo utilises the hot gas flow of the exhaust and the cool air flow of the intake, the close positioning of these two halves of the turbo leads to a high amount of heat soak. This blend of hot and cold parts of the turbo creates issues for both performance and reliability.
Our Turbo insulation Jackets increase in the following sizing order; T2 Turbo Blanket, T25 Turbo Blanket, T3 Turbo Blanket, T3/4 Turbo Blanket, T4 Turbo Blanket, T6 Turbo Blanket., IS38 Turbo Blanket
