    Heatsheild don't fit after intalling downpipe.

    I have a 2012 wrx hatch. Just installed a invidia catted downpipe. When I tried reinstalling the heat sheild it wouldn't fit my car. My question to you guys is, what aftermarket heatsheild would fit. I was going to buy a perrin heat sheild later.I didn't know I was going to need it for this installation. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Take a dremel and modify the stock one. Won't look as pretty as an aftermarket one, but it's "free", since you already paid for it

    You can cut the tin OEM heatshield. But I suspect you will get the same awful heat shield rattle you had before cutting it.

    I have a Grimmspeed heatshield. It uses just 3 bolts & is quite easy to install.

    Thanks guys for the quick response. Ill probably try the drimel first then if I mess it up look into getting a aftermarket one.
