Heat sheild

my question is more of a "what damage can happen?"

i have noticed that some fords on the forums dont have the heat sheild that sits at the back of the engine before the fire wall. is this a bad thing, i thought it would get pretty hot and stuff the paint. would this affect the temp inside the cabin, or any of the electrics behind the dash?

thankz

its basically there for sound insulation. Youll find its mainly the GL's that dont have it. Makes removing the engine and leaving trans in the car a shit load easier if its not there. Trade off, more engine noise in the cabin
