For that price, I may just pick one up. A little more protection from heat soaking the intercooler couldn't hurt.

I'll get both of them mainly for looks. They might get dirty easily and I won't see it much but the engine will look pretty. I agree, a little more protection wouldn't hurt. I wonder if SPT will come up with their own downpipe.

Meh, the heatshield looks different, but not necessarily better. I trimmed my stocker carefully, rolled the edges in and painted it with black hi-temp enamel, and might get it thermal coated one day, it works awesome.

Oh, and the Crucial radiator shroud is both cooler and cheaper

Would like to know if the heat shield will fit other than stock downpipes.

They look pretty good though a bit pricey but not crazy ha ha.

Yeah, I might wait to find that question out before I order one. Right now i have the stock dp so it should fit but soon i will be getting a new dp (going to stage 2) and I would hate to buy it then find out it will not work on aftermarket dp.

I got the turbo shield and radiator shroud today!


As expected, installation was simple. The only thing I can suggest after installing is to clean the rubber air thingies under the hood towards the front. Else you will get smudge on your brand new shiny shroud when you close the hood. A couple alcohol wipes come with the shroud and shield for you to wipe clean the parts if you happen to accidentally get them dirty.



The turbo shield simply goes on top of the turbo, under the intercooler. I will put this in after I install my Cobb downpipe. I'm happy with these items.

Finally got around to installing my SPT turbo heatshield. Total install time was about 25 minutes (in warmer weather it would probably take 15, but it's 10 degrees today!)

Box o' goodies.



Before:



Installed! I left the modded stock shield on underneath the SPT unit. I figure it can't hurt to have extra protection.



Engine bay shot (I apologize for the engine being dirty, it's too cold to clean it)





-Ben


PS: This will clear ANY downpipe. Once you see how it installs that becomes painfully clear.

Since this heatshield clears all aftermarket DP...this might be a prepartion that SPT might soon release their own DP
