wish I was young again it only took me a week to get done what you do in a couple of days. Looking good U
I am sure you thought about covering the exhaust to protect the batteries and keep the heat out.

Yes, i will wrap the exhaust with DEI Titanium wrap, that will be a start, once it is running then we will see if we need more heat protection or not...

I wrapped my exhaust pipe, but I need a turbo blanket. It builds a ton of heat!

Here is the DEI exhaust wrap.

I am looking at EHP wet blanket for the muffler, being so close to the floor. They said it cuts heat 50 to 75%, which seems substantial to me. I would think it would work for the turbo, also.

When we had our business I represented EHP at a minor level. The product is amazing.

I used the wet blanket product on my exhaust manifolds and turbo on my 6V92 and it was great. The only issue is that it is fragile. It needs to be protected. I used a high temp aluminum tape as I recall.

From what I remember, turbos can reach temperatures as high as 1400 degrees F, while aluminum can melt at around 1200 degrees F. That is a worst case situation, but it would seem prudent to use stainless steel bands or covers because they melt at twice the temperature, or ceramics that are not fragile. Maybe the EHP dry blankets are less fragile? The Titanium pipe wrap is good for 1800 degrees F of direct contact, but it stiffens after being exposed to heat, and would be messy to remove if repair or replacement is needed. That is why Clifford Allen prefers the custom made covers that an outfit like PowerTherm makes, which are expensive.

Yes, Penn recommended covering in a different material that was a little more robust to hold up to road debris, rocks, etc.

Since my muffler isn't exposed to the road I am not sure I would need that...

He also recommended stainless steel bands to hold the wet blanket on, but did say you could use tape as Jim did.
