Nizpro low mount heat shield

Recommended Posts


with a exhaust manifold like that, under-bonnet temps are absolutely necessary to control, unless you want melted bits and pieces under the bonnet, so yes, I would run the heat shield.

ceramic coating can help, but a heat shield will do a better job and allow for thermal expansion etc.

Heat shield bro, do ceramic coating as well if you can handle the wait.
I found it was a very small difference with just ceramic coating but it is a good method of rust prevention aswell.

With my 6boost manifold I went with the fancy titanium heat wrap on top of the ceramic coating and it made the biggest difference. Mind you it still caused the paint fade on the bonnet where the manifold is.

I definitely don’t want paint fade so I guess I’ll keep the heat shield on, haven’t had a problem with it on but its just a shame to hide the manifold

just take the heat shield off when you're "showing" the car, if that's your concern :) if you want to look at it when you're washing it or servicing it etc, that's up to you to remove the bolts and take it off haha

It’s a Garrett gt51r, it looks tiny in that pic but it isn’t really. Hard to compare it to a stock manifold but it would flow a heap more.
