Fits all 2016-2021 Civic & Civic Si 1.5T
In keeping the exhaust gases within the turbocharger hot, turbocharger efficiency is improved. Also, by keeping the heat of the exhaust gases contained within the hot side of the turbocharger, away from the cool side of the turbocharger and the intake path, more oxygen per unit volume reaches the engine, and thus, more power can be achieved.
The PTP Lava Turbo Blankets are constructed with an outer layer made from pulverized volcanic lava rock (Rated 1800°F Direct Heat / 2500°F Radiant Heat) formed into fabric and woven into a tight mesh weave, these turbo blankets are internally insulated with high temperature calcium magnesium silicate wool (Rated 1832°F Continuous / 2300°F Peak) overlaid with a high temperature stainless steel mesh for increased durability and improved thermal resistance. The Lava Turbo Blankets are designed to withstand the harshest of conditions.
Every PTP Turbo Blanket is hand-crafted in North America, and quality is guaranteed. PTP Turbo Blankets are well known in the heat insulation industry for its high standards for material selection, design, and construction. Our materials are on the cutting edge of heat insulation technology. With the growing amount of imitation turbo blankets on the market, it's important to note many of them are manufactured using inferior materials for construction. Imitation turbo blankets can be ineffective, or worse, they can be dangerous with the possibility of it being constructed using flammable materials.

I installed this along with all of PRL's other bolt ons because I had to remove the factory Inlet pipe to get to the heat shield. Mine did not come with retention springs, only the wire. I attached it to the end with one loom and ran the wire behind the turbo to pull it back up through. then looped it around the other two a few times to secure it. I would recommend screwing the O2 sensor back into place after the factory heat shield is before completing the wiring.
