Default Grimmspeed Heatshield

Got a new grimmspeed heatshield for the 2011 WRX sedan

First impressions out of the box. Very nicely packaged with a thank you card!
The stainless steel has a good weight to it. It is definitely not flimsy at all and it has space to fit bigger downpipes as well.

The piece is beautiful and it lowered my engine bay temps significantly compared to my piece of crap cut up oem heatshield.

Installation: You need the downpipe bracket for the heatshield and that's all. The lower bolt mount is pretty hard to reach and torque on. Make sure you have small hands or tons of patience. I loved how it's such an easy installation and straight forward as well. I would rate this a 2/10 on difficulty.

My tip: do this when you switch downpipes.

Grimmspeed also has one of the best customer service out there as well. I didn't get a free grimmspeed sticker so I emailed them and within the week they were shipped to me

Here's where I put them




REPPIN GRIMMSPEED!
