I'm going with orange/red theme of inferno. I couldn't find a matching orange, not really wanting to paint again either lol, sadly. The flash really adds a brightness to it that it doesn't have.

looks good, i personally think the braces would look much nicer if they match the paint color
adding the red might throw it off, the orange looks amazing with black/carbon fiber

just my $.02

Funny you mention that Wakefieldl, I actually am running the heat shield now. I have a custom heat shield I made. I put it in now but currently have only vids of the day I installed the headers, which I was too lazy to put the heat shield in, more excited to just get it started up.

It isn't that much protection, just a thin piece of metal cut with some insulation that probably does nothing to help, but its more then nothing, and best of all holds filter in place and gives PCM a place to rest.

I def hope it goes well with everything else. It will add a bit more color to engine bay without having to paint blower or valve covers. Should look really good.
