    Not required, per se, but it definitely reduces underhood temps...

    Do you have the stock DP? If so, I can sell you my stocker for cheap. PM me if you're interested.

    I have a full OEM STI exhaust system on my 04 WRX. Will it still fit?

    I don't have a heat shield over my 16g, it hasn't caused me a problem yet. As said above, a heat shield will lower the underhood temperatures.
