Thumbs up Heatshield on MY99 installed!

Just got back from the testdrive. The setup is a MY 99 with K&N conefilter on Kartboy adapter and stock plumbing from the MAF in.
Borla catback and UD pulley.
Before: After the engine warms up, the performance decreased noticeably.
The catback popped like crazy when easing off the gas( too rich, aka not enough O2).
After: Warmup, then tried all rpms and gears.
Response and punch at 2500 greatly improved.
At 3000 not too much difference, above 4000 more power. A lot less exhaust popping, which means the the engine pulls in more dense air, aka cooler than before.
The inside of the heatshield is hot, the side facing the filter is almost completely cold!
I'm happy with it.

The inside is the side towards the inside of the car, thats where the motor is. Being a flat panel, the inside would be hard to determine.
