Yes, I was so happy when the box of parts arrived on my door step yesterday!
I ordered a Spectre pipe, K&N# RX4750, and a heat shield made by Spectre.
I am wondering if the heat shield will be adequate, as it only covers half of the filter. I suspect it will be turned as you see in the pictures below, to keep the shield towards the heat side of the engine bay.
Do you think this shield will be okay, or should I start dreaming up something different?
Also, if I am planning on mounting the filter this direction, I will likely pick up a smaller windshield washer bottle from a Bonneville not equipped with headlight washers, to free up some space...
(Note: These pics are a little dark. I had to adjust the flash to prevent glare from the chrome pipe & shield)
Oh yes, post installation pics will come!

Thanks for your advice,
