I’ve been reading about Turbo Blankets/Shields..?..

What do you all think? Is it beneficial to use a turbo shield in order to protect the rest of the engine compartment?
Will this affect my warranty?

With our integrated oil catch tank on the turbo, and oil plumbing for turbo and PCV system that run into the turbo and catch tank, I personally wouldn't consider a turbo blanket. I personally would be more concerned with proper heat dissipation from the turbo, than heat buildup near other engine components.

Not worth the risk to the turbo. Those blankets are to protect the car from heat induced damage from high horsepower applications, on a stock low mount turbo you will likely introduce excessive heat to the turbine causing more damage than you are trying to prevent.
