I feel ya there man, it was total chaos these last 2 weeks. I'm not running a heat shield right now either. I need to fab one up or something. You're not risking anything at all; the only downside to no heat shield is the possibility of heat soak. Instead of your IC taking in cooler air, the high temps from the DP/engine get sucked in there too which can decrease HP/TQ #'s. I have to take care of mine sometime. I sit at stop lights and look at the watery mirage that appears over the hood scoop which is the bumper of the car infront of me hahah But I'm getting some heat wrap here soon so I'll be wrapping the DP/headers and probably the midpipe as well.
Whats up killer. Too bad we didnt get to meet up before the break it just gets busy during finals. Hope your breaks going good. I just had a quick question. Do you have a turbo heat shield? I haven't had one on since i had the exhaust changed and am about to flash it to Stage 2 w cobb ap. Is it necessary? Am I losing/risking a whole lot by not having one?
Hahahaha hey man. Glad to see you finally joined. Yea, I felt pretty gay leaving that on your car, but I've done it to all the others I've seen in G-Ville haha. This website has so much info. Everyone is pretty friendly too (unlike NASIOC) and I've met alot of great people here. I always ask my buddies at the Bellamy, "Hey, do any of you know the guy with the WRX?" But no one does haha Definitely hit me up sometime. My number is 703-407-5051. Name's Andrew by the way. I'm all the way over at North Campus but maybe I'll see ya before we all head back for winter break.
Hey I finally took the time to get on clubwrx over the thanksgiving break. Not sure if you remember or not but you gave me a clubwrx card on my car in the Bellamy on Charles street. I actually had a note prepared myself but by the time I walked out there your soob was gone. Thanks for the invite this forum is really helpful. Nice job on your rex it looks real good, especially the goldies. Maybe we can meet up some time after the new year and car talk. I may have some questions for you. Take it easy see you around in G-Vegas
