Default Series 1 Crossover pipe heat shield with PICS.

The crossover pipe heatshield from www.grandprixstore.com will NOT fit the Series 1 as intended due to the different spacing of TB bolts and the location of our TPS, but it CAN be made to work.

Simply cut the mounting tabs off, and use two sheetmetal screws to install it onto the stock rear shield. Kudos to my wrench buddy Eric (the guy who filmed my 100mph pass in the dark), who did this for me while I worked on my Stabilizer bar endlinks:

CORRECTION.....I looked at Jseabert'* L27 today with him, and it looks like the install would be different, but still possible.

Hmm thats sorta expensive for something you gotta cut up. We could probably get some SS sheeting cheaper and make one that fits even better.

I think im gonna go with a dei heat wrap, supposed to insulate the exhaust really well, better than the stock heat shields

Keep us posted on the cost of that one, the amount and width of the wrap you buy, and how it looks! This is something I'm interested in.

Performance does NOT have to sacrifice cosmetics

That'* why we drive Bonnevilles, remember?

Nice, Bill. I'll be doing that this summer. Either that or the wrap, whatever works better. Hopefully I'll have a CAI by summer at least.

Even if I do the wrap, I'll leave this. The whole idea is to keep the air from the radiator flowing to the rear, and not allow it to circulate near the TB.

Yeah, I think I'll do that too. Won't hurt one bit. Do they make wrap for the Series 1 in particular?
