Yea or nay? I've been considering getting one, but can't find anything saying what brand, model or size the stock turbo is. Any info on this?

Did you ever figure this out or do one? I think the science is sound but the turbo on this truck looks tight.
I haven't been able to get a straight answer yet on what turbo is on these trucks from the factory. Barring that, the other option is to try to physically measure the turbo and find a blanket that fits (or have one made).

So I've been able to find that the factory turbo is a Honeywell GTD2060VR (CRP Engineering is using this turbo to make upgrades with upsized compressors and turbines, Performance Turbochargers for FORD F-150 3.0L Diesel 2018 – CR Performance Engineering Inc.). What does this mean?
  • GT: “Garrett Turbo”
  • 20: refers to the “frame size” of the turbo, based on the turbine wheel inducer (the inducer being the top of the blade).
  • 60: refers to the compressor exducer size, in millimeters, of the compressor wheel. So in this example, the 60 means the turbo has a 60mm compressor wheel exducer diameter.
  • V: means variable geometry turbo.
  • R: indicates that the turbo uses ball-bearings, rather than journal bearings.
PTP makes lots of turbo specific blankets, and seem to make a high-quality product, however I've not found any that are direct fit options for our trucks. I've sent them a request for information regarding making a turbo blanket for our trucks, until then this might be the best fitting option: G25 IWG Turbo Blanket

So I have yet to dive deep into the engine bay of my 3.0. Definitely not out in the open like some cars. Anyone know exactly where it is? This IMO would determine if a blanket is useful or not depending on where it is located / what parts are near it that could get affected by heat.

@Chrispy - let me introduce you to a valuable forum resource that @wreedsvt posted for us:

3.0 L Ford F150 Diesel Coffee Table Book

Specifically look at Page 8 for a visual location of where the turbo-charger is located on our engines. Hint: Diagram on Page 8 is looking at the back side of the engine

You may want to peruse the rest of the book at it has lot of breakdowns and diagrams that you just can't get with pics of an entire assembled engine in the engine bay.

You can easily see the turbo through the passenger side front wheel well, or from underneath with the soft belly pan removed.

I like this idea! If you do it I would love to see some pictures and details. Thanks @navyR113
