    The turbocharger is one of the hottest components in your engine bay and can have some really negative effects on its surroundings. As it gets red-hot, it also heats your intercooler and the charge air going through it into your engine, resulting in a loss of power. In stock form, the turbo is covered by an OEM heat shield, however this heat shield will not fit with most aftermarket downpipes or turbos. The GrimmSpeed V2 Turbo Heat Shield solves this problem as it’s designed to fit a variety of aftermarket downpipes and turbos with one job in mind: to decrease the heat in your engine bay and keep that TMIC as cool as possible!

    To us, both form and function are priorities when it comes to modifying cars and that's why we’ve raised the bar with the Version 2 of our extremely popular heat shield. We’ve taken things to the next level with an all new bold design that not only covers more of the turbo to reduce heat, but is also a beautiful aesthetic piece that compliments the rest of your GrimmSpeed parts. This new design is even easier to install, avoiding the poor fitment issues of competitors and is resistant to the cracking problem that other heat shields are afflicted with. The GrimmSpeed Turbo Heat Shield is constructed out of 304 Stainless Steel featuring a gorgeous brushed finish, complimented by a laser-etched GrimmSpeed logo. The heat shield is also available with a functional black ceramic coating (sans laser etched logo) that provides additional benefits against the heat. On top of that, because of YOUR requests, we’ve gone a step further and added an optional pre-cut DEI Reflect-A-GOLD™ foil that can be utilized to further reduce radiant heat from your turbo.

    Testing

    To test the effectiveness of the heat shield in reducing temperature on the surface of the intercooler near the turbo, a test vehicle was driven in a predetermined loop and measured in the same location for each heat shield configuration. The drive loop consisted of 6 miles of low speed driving, followed by 10 miles of highway driving. The vehicle was then returned to the shop, where a FLIR C2 Thermal Imaging Camera was used to measure the temperature of the surface on the side of a GrimmSpeed STI TMIC. The measured location used was just above the passenger side bracket (for consistency) and is of interest due to its proximity to the turbocharger. All of the testing was performed on the same day, driving the same path with the same amount of WOT, in 20 degree F ambient temperature. The temperature measurement for each heat shield configuration is as follows:

    As you can see, The GrimmSpeed V2 Turbo Heat Shield offers an impressive improvement of over 20% heat reduction as measured at the surface of the TMIC when compared to an exposed turbocharger. The addition of the DEI Reflect-A-GOLD™ foil increased that improvement an additional 10%. The black ceramic coated heat shield offered an even greater improvement with a heat reduction of over 32%. When coupled with our pre-cut gold foil, the overall heat reduction reaches a staggering 36%.

     

    GrimmSpeed was founded in 2006 to provide customers with innovative and highly engineered aftermarket products. On a more personal level, we are a group of car enthusiasts in the lovely city of Minneapolis, Minnesota who are absolutely passionate about what we do. Our bread and butter started out anything Subaru. However, after growing our team and engineering expertise, we started developing products for Mitsubishi, Ford, MazdaSpeed, and Hyundai markets. We are a true garage start-up (single stall townhouse garage in Maplewood, MN) and we've been lucky enough over the years to be able to turn it into exactly the business we had dreamed of....actually, much more. We have a wide breadth of product offerings including: intercoolers, exhausts, intakes, gaskets, engine pulleys, phenolic spacers, boost controllers, and many more.

    Most of our decisions at GrimmSpeed are based on 3 basic principles:

     

    aboutus-2.jpg

    1. Innovation

    Our team knows that if they propose a project there has to be at least one new innovative feature. It may be a completely new idea or an innovation to a current product on the market. We truly love creating products that really work and make an impact on the enthusiast community.

    2. Keeping Jobs in Minnesota

    Lets face it, manufacturing in the US has been lost for a long time. It's sad because manufacturing is what this great country was founded on. Our goal is to do our part in bringing it back to the US. Lets show the rest of the world that we do still 'have it'. Almost all of our partners are right here in Minnesota, most of which are within an hour drive of us.  Its not always about the $$ and we are here to prove that.

    3. Customer Service You Deserve

    What flies for customer service these days just continues to astonish us. We don't have to tell you guys, I'm sure you are all well aware of some of the terrible customer service that goes on these days, especially in our industry. Our goals are to be honest with you, if something is going to be delayed, we aren't going to give you some made up date when it will be ready....we will tell you exactly the most current info we have. If you need help installing our products we will be there on the phone or email ready to help until you have figured out the issue. Last but not least, we will keep our word. If we say we are going to call you back, we actually will.
