Hey thanks for the info. I'm in the process of building my heat shield. I'm thinking of using two pieces of stainless steel. It'* going to be more of a box really though.
The way I'm thinking of doing it is running a piece of stainless over the top of the air filter and a piece of stainless behind the air filter and using reflectix on the inside of the two pieces to insulate it from the hot engine air. The pieces would be joined together and bolted to the car, with sheet metal screws. So the air filter will be pretty much enclosed.
Any gearheads that want to read this and give me their input it would be appreciated.
Oh yeah, has anyone used the autolite platnum plugs?? Mine are the AP605'*
Haven't installed them yet, I'm waiting to get my new wires.
02 Se with a few mods,
Coming Soon 1.9'* OR pushrods and other stuff
