So i cant seem to track down a blinktekdesign heat shield, so i've decided to make my own.
i have a few questions for those lucky few that have one. first off, is it aluminum? second, whats the thickness of it?
thanks in advance
it is aluminum, he used basically the same thickness as a road sign would be but you can find adequate thickness's at home depot or Lowe's. and use cardboard as your template and cut from there, then use a rubber hose to cover the edges,
Any VWs made after 92 are usually only good for drive train donors.
Are you able to put up the dimensions of the shield when you are done so others can do their own too? At least as a starting point?

The one in my pics are made of 20 guage stainless. i will later be making it out of 16 guage aluminum.
the DEI reflect-a-gold material on the turbo side of the head shield will keep about 80% of the heat out. even without the reflect a gold my intake is staying much cooler.
