The Forge Motorsport Turbo Blanket has been specifically designed for the stock turbo charger on the 2nd generation MINI Cooper S models. This turbo blanket is designed to isolate the radiant heat produced by the turbocharger and minimize the risk of warping the hood scoop. This blanket installs over the turbo after removing the factory heat shield.

For the following Cooper S models:

2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper S Hardtop
2008-2014 R55 MINI Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 MINI Cooper S Convertible 
2012-2015 R58 MINI Cooper S Coupe
2012-2015 R59 MINI Cooper S Roadster
2011-2016 R60 MINI Cooper S Countryman
2013-2016 R61 MINI Cooper S Paceman

The stock Mini heat shield is inadequate and can result in warping the standard air scoop located in the bonnet.
This design has been created to withstand the harshest of environments and proven to withstand temperatures up to 2500 °f of radiant heat which will assist in protecting and prolonging the life of engine components.

Design innovation keeps the heat of the exhaust gases contained within the hot side of the turbocharger, away from the cool side and the intake path which helps reduce turbo lag and air intake temperatures resulting in more power.
Please note that a turbo blanket will lose its flexibility over the first few heat cycles as the material cures, so once fitted it should not be routinely removed as this can cause damage to the blanket.

  • Stainless Steel Rivets
  • Stainless Steel Grommets
  • Carbon fabric outer shell
  • Calcium Magnesium Silicate Wool constructed Inner Core
  • High temperature Silica fabric

NOTE:  Since this Turbo Blanket will contain most of the radiant heat from the turbo, it is important that you allow the turbo to cool down to normal operating temperatures before shutdown following a hard or spirited drive.  Otherwise, you run the risk of oil coking in the lines and passages.  Oil is the most effective cooling medium for the turbo, so idle your engine for a couple minutes following a hard or spirited drive and let your turbo cool before shutting down!

Question:
Will the Turbo Blanket cause pre-mature wear out or shorten the life of the turbo.
Answer:
The Turbos are cooled internally by engine coolant, and lubricated/cooled by the engine oil - they have all the protection they need from the inside. Turbo blankets increase engine life by lowering under-hood temperatures and keeping the rest of the system working nominally under increased performance load.

Question:
Will this fit on an R56 with a K04 turbo
Answer:
The blanket is specifically designed for the stock turbo charger. Having not tested it on larger/aftermarket turbos, I can't confirm that it will fit. Although not as effective, a heatshield like the G2NME2113 might be a better fit solution for you.

Happy Motoring!

Question:
Hi will this blanket fit a JMTC S42 turbo?
Answer:
Yes, the S42 is a K03 turbo so the G2NME2895 turbo blanket should fit fine.
