Further to my comments about my heat shield I just thought I would add a few pics of it lifted from my thread on exiges.com now its fitted.
Its 1.5mm Aluminium sheet, 580mm wide, 230mm deep with a 45deg kick at 190mm.
I managed to get the pressing done for free by a chap I know, however he used an offcut which was quite badly scratched so as I am a gjob I spoke to another friend who got it powdercoated for free :grin: (do you see a pattern?)
I know that black is possibly a crap colour for a heat shield but I dont think it will have to much of an effect and it just keeps everything looking tidy and OEM imho.
As you can see in the following pics the kick helps to guide the heat away from the supercharger and keeps it away from the intercooler.
I was still very keen to make sure I did not stop the heat getting away and increase engine bay temps, also the the shield did not make access difficult.
It does need to come off tomorrow so I can fit some trim tape between the mounts and the heat shield as I have a slight resonation but I can see it so its an easy fix.
Would be glad of any thoughts and comments.
