Well i've been thinking about it and thinking about it for so long i finally decided to give it a shot. For my 1st attempt i think it turned out okay. I plan on getting a probe thermometer to see if there is any difference in the air temp with and without the shield. I also added some ducting to guide the front ram-air section to the top of the filter and another (COAM style) from the front left grill to the bottom of the filter. I used 30 gauge sheet metal (that's all they had at home depot) and some Heat insulation/reflector material from Pep-Boys...which i later found cheaper at Home Depot ($20 @ Pep boys....$17 at Home Depot). I also used some Fire resistant motar...i wasn't sure of the heat levels and if traditional silicone would be up to the task so i decided to try this stuff. Looks like it's holding the material pretty well and it dries in about 5-10 minutes. This "heat-shield" is working in conjunction with the HKS shield provided. I'm curious to know what you guys think. Also any idea for improvments? Or was it just a plain dumb idea?
