Blankets keep heat in the turbine. More heat equals more power!

Aki:
Hah!  Was just shopping around for a blanket. 

There's not much to screw up but I imagine different materials could make a difference... As such, anyone have a preferred or recommended brand? 

PTP was the one that I ran across right away as having stock Subaru fitment (this will be going on a VF24): http://ptpturboblankets.com/Subaru-WRX-Turbo-Blanket-Black-000513.html

I've been running a PTP for 5 years without issue. Their lava rock one looks great. I say if MotoIQ likes them (http://www.motoiq.com/MagazineArticles/ID/4047/The-PTP-Lava-Turbo-Blanket-Literally-Rocks.aspx), you can't go wrong. I love MotoIQ. I still miss Sport Compact Car.

Aki:
Good enough for me by far! 

And yeah, was excited to see that familiar font and page formatting before recognizing the name.  :)

Aki:
And now that I look closer at performance and temp numbers, Lava it is!  http://ptpturboblankets.com/Subaru-WRX-Turbo-Blanket-Lava-000516.html
