It seems that the stock heat shield doesn't fit back on after downpipe intall. Does anyone make a modified heat shield to cover this. I don't want to put a new downpipe on my car and then just have the performance taken away by increased heat on the intercooler.

What is everyone else doing after they install an aftermarket downpipe? Going without a heat sheild or modifiying the stock heat shield?

the stock heat shield is very inaffective. its just a piece of sheet metal. what you could do is put heat wrap(i think thats what its called) you can get them at home depot and just wrap your whole downpipe with it.

The heat wrap idea might work. They make header wrap for headers. I wonder if it would work on a down pipe?
