Standard breather with a built-in heatshield. Keeps the crap off the blower.

Hotter exhaust moves more efficiently, and it prevents some heatsoak in the engine bay, which helps keep my intake cooler.

And it stinks. LORDY it stinks! Sure hope this burns off soon.

What did you use for that manifold shielding? It kinda looks like tin foil... and did you notice a difference in your engine bay temps, or performance?

I've only driven it 2 miles, but I let it warm up. Rated for 1200F, made by DEI. 1 3/8" adhesive backed foil tape.

Wow, that'* awesome. So is it DEI like the alarm company? How much did it cost, and how far down the manifold did you go?
