Default no heatshield after DP installed

since the stock turbo heatshield was screwed on to the stock cat....after the DP was installed... there weren't a way to fit the shield back on.... is that alright? The place where I got it installed said since the cat is gone... I loose some back preasure so the turbo wont get as hot...and I'll be fine.... true?

If you cut away some of the stock turbo heat shield so you can fit it over an aftermarket downpipe. The turbo's heat shield is not entirely attached to the downpipe. There are other mounting locations too. That's what I did with my catted helix DP. I used a good pair of tin snips, or dremel tool with a cutoff wheel might work.

trust me your turbo still get's PLENTY flippin hot. I would personally get some heat wrap, wrap the hot side of the turbo, and the first foot or so of the DP (the part in the engine bay), and then either modify the stock HS and reinstall, or buy a cheapie AM HS>

There should be about 3 bolt holes up top that are reusable and 2 down on the side that are a real pain to get to. STI may be slightly different but you should still be able to get it on (after trimming of course). You definitely want it on there.

There is a bracket that you reuse that the heat shield bolts to. Heatwrap anyway FTW.

There is a trimming guide somewhere. Check scoobymods.com as a start. I know Cobb sends a trim guide with their DP's. Maybe they can send you a copy. It'll show you where to cut so you can fit it over the new DP, but still retain 4 or 5 of the stock mounting points.

I rolled w/o a heatshield for a month or so. I noticed after driving for 30~ minutes the heat soak would set in and my power would drop significantly. So I got a plyers, bent and cut my stocker..(took about 2 minutes) and since I replaced it (and heat wrapped my UP but that's another story) it continues to pull hard all night long.

I put a Cobb heat shield on when I installed my TBE. It was only $50.

That is the only pic I have handy. Its a nice product, not too hard to install.

Psybin...heat wrap and a heat shield? I know that's probably the safest route, but wouldn't the wrap be good enough. I went from nothing to the heat wrap, which was pretty easy btw, and I noticed the difference immediately. Although the smoke from the sealant made me nervous for a minute cause I thought I was on fire.

I wouldn't say immediately as in instantly, but you should be able to notice it after a little while as the exhaust heats up. If your going to wrap the exhaust you'll probably notice the new smell too.

I'm not sure if there's a set length, but probably at least a foot off of the turbo. I just wrapped my whole DP. It's not hard at all and considering your going to have to take it off the car you might as well wrap the whole thing, but that's your call.
