got bored and messed around a little today. I used to have a similar setup on my old 2.5RS so i thought I'd try again. Intake heat shield DIY.

What I used:

Small piece of sheet metal, cut to desired size needed for clearance and fit. Bent to fit. Painted to desired color, or left metal.

Found some random hardware- "c" bracket, and short screw with nut.



Test fit it on the intake, under the hose clamp, against the filter.


Test fit the hardware on the shield


painted the shield red, to match my other under hood goodies.


installed:




Cleaned up under the hood while the paint dried, the shield matches pretty well in my opinion.


I would have used more c brackets if i had them, at least one more. I will put another on eventually, this was a quick mock up to reproduce the one I had made for my 2.5RS

So you're still pulling the same hot air from the engine compartment, only now you've partially blocked your air filter?

eek, hate to agree. be sure to bend it up so it doesnt get vacuumed down over air filter panels / folds.

you really, really need a cold ram intake of some sort. fast-rushing air is the best way to cool that area.

google "WRX snorkel" or WRX ram-air. $30 plastic scoop that fits behind grille ===>>> best.

Maybe. Theres about an inch space between the filter and the shield, so its not really blocking it, its just shielding the hotter air from the coolant reservoir and turbo area from going in.
i've checked my turbo temps after just cruising around and they were around 600 degrees, obviously cooler further away. I have no snorkus in the fender and most of the air is coming in from the fender hole or in front, so I believe it is functional.

obviously going to a cai would be better than sri, but for now this is what ive fabbed up.

hey dude,
i use flickr too. it took a while for me to figure out how to embed photos on NASIOC. what you do is: in the flickr 'share' popup, go down to the last option where it says "grab HTML / BB code".

choose: "BB code" and the desired embed image size

copy/paste code into NASIOC replies.
cheers

Keep in mind that the idea of a heat shield is to prevent radiant heat from entering the engine bay (i.e. why there is one over the turbo). Putting a piece of metal around the filter of a hot air intake if anything will just provide a hot surface for colder air, provided it is entering through the fender, to run across and heat up pre-intake.

You would probably be better off facing it towards the turbo instead of the hood to boot, but I'm guessing its just for looks. Probably can't hurt much more than having an open filter in the engine bay anyway
