It looks like that heat shield covers the compressor side in the same compartment as the exhaust section. Is this bad, in the sense that it raises temp exposure to the compressor portion?

Is the shield only a plate blocking the side (IC) and top or does it extend around and make more of a closed-in box for the turbo?


EDIT: I took a look at the pic on the web page and it appears that the compressor portion is left outside the heat shield. This seems good to me!

Other question: does the mounting bolt/washer go through the extra hole (relative to stock) on the IC mounting bracket above the turbo?
