    I'm after the OEM fabric heatshield stuff that wraps around the turbo red hose if anyone has removed it and wouldn't mind selling me it?

    It's the silver space suit stuff with poppers on it.

    Cheers Lads.

    Wel above the mani,not covering it so it can't let the heat out,just trying to keep the heat away from the charge pipe,and also around the right hand side of the mani,to keep heat away from the turbo elbo,the side by the tubo elbo is also going to have some heat resistance material they use in airplane wing's,so sound's great,and does look good,just mate can only make after work when he has time!: ( shoul be ready next week!

    Hello guys I'm Adams mate who's have a pop at making a heat shield for him. He has given me permission to use his login details so I can post up some pictures of the progress so far. The heat shield is in development as we speak, the template is made from 0.7mm thick titanium and the finished product will be made from 1.6mm titanium as it has greater heat resistants also less flex.

    Template off of the car:

    Sorry its a little picture heavy but that is the basic idea, if I am able I may be able to make a couple more but it also depends what peeps are willing to pay as to wether it is worth my while. Cheers
