cool Heat shields for extractors?

Anyone got any pics of heat shields they have fitted to their extractors on e-series cars to reduce engine bay temperatures and protect cables. Could you use the old heat shield somehow or use a piece of checkerplate?

cheers jjj

Re: Heat shields for extractors?

Re: Heat shields for extractors?

why do you want a heat shield for anyway.Extractors run cooler than stock manifold and with the airflow over and around them it tends to cool them down a bit.

Re: Heat shields for extractors?

I used a no stopping sign and bent the edge a bit to fit the curvature of the extractors and bolted in down with exhaust clamps i have a pic somewhere, will try find it....under bonnet temp seemed cooler when you opened the hood, plus the front quarter panels got no where near as warm with spirited driving...

Re: Heat shields for extractors?

I'm thinking of simply wrapping some susceptable wiring in tin foil once we get to summer. Hey, i just had a thought, what about wrapping foil around the intake hoses/ducts? Have to be tight mind u.

NC2 - with all the bells and whistles of course...
