Mu top shield is held on by two bolts. One on top thats under the intake pipe and one on the right side that attaches to the downpipe. I didnt attach the bottom bolt due to difficulty level. No need to put holes in the downpipe blanket because it comes with all holes needed from the factory to use with your heat shield

Can the downpipe elbow blanket be installed without removing the downpipe itself? Same for the turbo blanket?

Think of the walls in your house. During 150 degree hot summer days you run your AC to keep the inside of your house cool. If your walls weren't insulated than your house air wouldnt be able to reach 50 degrees and keep you cold. Same thing with insulating exhaust or intake pipes. When you're driving in 50 degrees weather and its 150 under your hood, you want your intake pipes to be insulated well so that they can keep that cool 50 degree air from getting too warm by the time it reaches your engine.
If you are wrapping something other than intake or exhaust pipes than you're statement is true because the items being wrapped would not be trying to cool or heat themselves and would eventually reach the same temperature as their surroundings.
Thanks for the response. I imagine the heat dissipation of the blanket material helps quite a bit as well keeping the temperature planes (hot exhaust versus engine bay) separate.
