Yes it will rattle. The Cobb heat shield only uses 3 bolts.

Get your stocker off and see if you can see it better. Try from under the car. You just need to get the threaded part out right? Kind of unclear on what broke. The small bolt holding the stock shield in, in the pita spot? Try some small vise grips to turn it out. Worst case, you have to drop the uppipe, but I'm pretty sure you won't need to.

If so, you should be able to get that out and use one of the other numerous stock bolts in that location.

so i hope this clarifies a little the bolt head snapped off and the rest of the screw is still inside the very bottom location. as in the pia spot with is the upipe location. i think ill just cut up the stocker some more i have not other choice it seems

Default I feel your pain.

I just finished installing a new downpipe and heat shield and ended up shearing at least half the bolts on the heat shield brackets including the bottom forward bolt the Cobb shield reuses. I ended up shifting the mounting location backward and catching the mounting hole just behind it. I've done 80 miles on it so far and no problems.

Yes. I just used the mounting bracket directly behind the mounting hole in the up-pipe (the one the directions recommend). No problems yet.
