TURBO SHIELD

for all you folks that are trying to make your big truck get fuel mileage of a car..... i stumbled across this while searching for something for work for our big turbos on our large natural gas engines. Thought i'd pass it along.

Re: TURBO SHIELD

Not a bad idea but very expensive.

My conveyor-belt air dam does the same thing and costs much less.

Agreed. Would take quite a while to see a return. I've got some belt material that I'm going to set up for myself pretty soon. A whole lot less expensive.

I was just pointing it out for ideas... personally i think it's stupid and ugly, but that's just me.. no offense to anyone on here though, just not for me.

Just figured that someone could take a look at it and fab something up of their own for cheaper.
