The MK 7 Volkswagen Polo GTI is the ultimate hot hatch, though has a small and tight engine bay. With a turbo that is right up against the bulkhead. This creates a few issues, low airflow through this area, as well as heating up the cockpit. A turbo blanket REDUCES your under bonnet temperatures, creating MORE usable power throughout the entire RPM range, helping keep your surrounding components more RELIABLE, and helping to ACCELERATE the hot gases away from the engine.
The Turbo Jacket for the Polo GTI, comes in 2 parts to provide MAXIMUM coverage and allow minimal heat soak. These Heat insulation blankets have been designed specifically for this turbo, unlike other manufacturers which utilise some one size fits all turbo blankets.
Check out our fitting guide of how to fit the Polo GTI blanket:
The mk7 Polo GTI Blanket is based around the construction of the Mk3. Turbo blanket, which has reinvented the durability and performance of the turbo blanket. With an all new construction for 2020, thicker insulation, and a better all round aesthetic. Check out this video to see it in action on the Dyno!
Due to the close proximity between the two halves of the turbo, it is extremely common for heat sink to occur. This can decrease performance output while increasing the work of the input components during the combustion cycle. Funk Motorsport Turbo blankets are designed to keep the hot side of your turbo insulated while keeping the cold side at optimum temperatures. This helps to provide cooler airflow to the cooling system and MAF sensor, leading to an increased ignition spark and higher output of energy from combustion. By ensuring that the turbine sector of the turbo remains hot, less heat will be dissipated into the engine bay, ensuring that exhaust gases will flow with less turbulence from the exhaust.
