Do you have pics? Did your exhaust manifolds to the turbo have the flat metal shields or just round pipes.

Thomas, my former engine had the flat shields, the new one does not. Here are some pics from the installation, hope they can help

Default Thanks Crit,

Looks great! So these blankets are new since the engine. Do you think the same pattern would kinda fit over the shields on mine? If not I'd have them do just the turbo and the elbow. Those shields are just put on with U bolts.
ATP stuff is really nice but kind of pricey, Maybe Santa will spring for the $$$ ones!

If you blow up this pic I think you will be able to see how the blankets are installed

Great picture Crit. I agree the shields should do the work of the blankets.
