DEI adds Turbo Shields
Avon Lake, Ohio based thermal and sound control specialist Design Engineering Inc. has added to its popular ONYX Series heat shield kits with a design specifically to deal with the heat issues generated by the increasing use of turbo chargers in powersports applications.
Turbo systems are the easiest and most cost-effective way to bolt on horsepower, and DEI's Turbo Shields are used to cover the housing, which helps maintain a more consistent temperature in the turbo, increasing efficiency and decreasing turbo lag.
With turbos located in an exposed position near the rider’s leg in many installations, the Turbo Shield also acts as a barrier, protecting the rider’s leg from discomfort or even injury.
DEI's Onyx Series flexible Turbo Shields are available for most of the popular turbo systems used in the powersports industry, including Mitsubishi units and the smaller Garrett GT 22 and GT25 turbo housings. DEI say that as an added value, their powersports Turbo Shield kits also include a 2” x 25’ roll of premium DEI exhaust wrap, ties and locking wire.
