Don't let a 1200f deg catalytic converter kill your turbocharger! This kit includes the MINI factory Heat Plate for the Oil Supply Line at the turbocharger and the high temperature thermal shield tube made to fit the Mini Cooper oil supply line. Double the protection!!
The early production models did not include the MINI factory Heat Plate - so this kit adds the missing heat shield PLUS the additional shielding from the thermal tube.

Your catalytic converter gets well over 1200f degrees during normal operation, normally this would not be an issue however your oil supply line runs right next to the hot cat-fold.
Since oil cokes at only 220f deg over time the heat can cause the oil in the line to burn. This burnt or Coked gelled oil can flake off and block the turbo oil input and stop the oil flow. This will kill your turbo in a matter of seconds and is one of the number one ways to cause a turbo to fail. Prevent this type of failure with our full 17 inch heat shield thermal wrap.
We don't just cover the first 6 inch's of your oil line like the OEM, we know that you need to protect the entire oil line. That is why our heat wrap covers the entire oil line from turbocharger to engine block. Don't let a hot cat kill your boost by blocking oil flow, get one of our oil line heat shields today.
