Re: Turbo heat shield for Perkins M80T


Those heat shields on the Volvo cost a fortune. The shield for the d3 110 is $500  we run a dry exhaust on big diesels we have heat wrap insulation, with a fibercloth to secure it. I did my d3 110 with leftover scraps from my muffler replacement. You could get what you need to wrap the turbo for $25, and have better insulation then their overpriced wrap, and it will look good to if you cut the pieces and fit them well

I have not replaced mine but yes it is cloth-like material covering
insulation.  It is held on with wire and clips. I would replace if oil
soaked. I cannot imagine it costs much.  You could make one by using fire
retardant high temp fabric surrounding fiberglass insulation.
