DEI Fuel Injector Reflective Heat CoversAVON LAKE, OHIO (AUGUST 24, 2015) – Turbo systems are the easiest and most cost effective way to bolt-on horsepower. For maximum performance potential, turbo shields are used to cover the housing to help maintain a more consistent temperature in the turbo; increasing air-flow efficiency and decreasing turbo lag. For powersports, the shield also doubles as a protective barrier to heat generated from the turbo-potentially protecting the rider from a leg or boot burn.

Building on the popularity of DEI’s award winning ONYX Series™ Flexible Heat Shield, DEI Powersports now offers the ONYX Series™ Turbo Shield, now available for Garrett® GT22 and GT25 turbo sizes. In addition to Garrett brand turbo housings, the ONYX Series™ Turbo Shields also fit several other popular turbo brands including Mitsubishi® and others.

DEI Fuel Injector Reflective Heat CoversAVON LAKE, OHIO (JULY 13, 2015) – In hot temps, both performance and factory fuel injectors can be at risk of vapor lock or heat soak causing a rough idle, slow starting or other potential serious engine problems.
