Working on my turbo build, but im having some worries with where im placing it due to some heat. Im going to build a custom cross over that will have the piping to bring the exhaust over to the corner where all the space is where the old air box used to be. Put the turbo there and then run the down pipe from there back. My concern is while that area has plenty of room for every thing the pcm sits there and the wiring there as well, which i think i can move somewhere far enough from the heat. There is some wiring going to the transmission there that is pretty close to the area though, and a few other things. Is there something that i can buy/ put down to protect all of the abovementioned from the heat coming off of the turbo. Just to make sure that nothing gets too hot and melts and gets ruined.

no ideas at all for heat shielding? Like would some of that fiberglass composit work? or does that transfer too much heat. Im looking for something that i could mold like a substance like bondo but more heat resisant

well you cant realy move the PCM much so i suggest building a box around the PCM covered in heat shield and have the bottom and sides closes to the headlight open so it still can get some air if the box does get heat soaked

as for the trans wiring i bought and placed/wrapped some heat shield around those as well and so far so good
