          Good to see someone trying something different, good work. You could even try some tapered versions like the off the shelf ones with a bit more fiddling around, like you say, a good weekend project.

            Thanks man! I originally was looking for aluminum baking trays to carve up but it seemed to be more of a pain in the ass to manipulate. Then I stumbled on maccas thread with the heat shield material, so I went from there.

            Had some debates with mates about whether slits should have been added to help vent the heat but I decided to keep it rainproof.

            Wondering if I should have added slits =/

              Probably better to leave it enclosed, should stop radiant heat affecting things like rubber intercooler/radiator hoses and the actual radiator itself.

                One suggestion to make it work even more efficient, is open up the driver side of the heat shield. From what i'm thinking is correct, more heat will try to escape that direction and min the heat going towards to important section of the engine bay. (Disclaimer: No warranty if it didn't work )

                      onion bag actually
                      noticed the snorkle attracts a lot of bugs to the panel filter...so stuck that there to see if it helps...maybe i should take it off...dont think it does help lol

                          looks very good, i got excited thinking this may be my next project, usually my prototyping is the final product and this looks easy.

                          thanks.

                            yeah man, its easy. Just make sure you use a nibbler, otherwise will be painful.

                            next project for me is a custom intake.

                              Nibbler - Not using him is painful....
