I'll be interested if this helps come summer time.
Ive been looking to replace mine... since it disappeared somewhere I need to.
With all the options, it looks like you got the OEM with the openings.
What part number is that?
It is the OEM. I bought it from the dealer. I don't have the part number. The tech put the heat tape down and made a few minor other tweaks but was essentially a straight bolt on.
Ah! Dealer item. I can figure that out in the morning. Thank .
Do NOT forget this... let us know if you notice better PTU temps or anything else.
I keep forgetting to order this.
What's the benefits of putting this on?
More airflow around the rear turbo and ptu.
cool found my newest upgrade.
Ordered should get it in a week.
If you install this and you get more cooling airflow around the rear turbo and PTU, how much extra road grime accumulates that needs cleaned off before oil changes/maintenance/repairs?
Mine has been on for about a year. I really haven't seen any added grime honestly.
That's good, I live in the snow belt, so I get to drive on salted roads 3-5 months of the year. That kind of road grime/salt/rust is what I would be worried about.
This is something I've been thinking about....does anyone have solid info on how much this helps?
I posted a while ago after I did mine. I saw a drop in temps per my Torque app. Happy I did mine and should help more once temps warm up.
