    I'm sure someone on here had created a heat shield out of sheet aluminium that protects the red charge hose from the heat of the manifold? I've looked at Prawn's thread to see the way he made his but as it's on an A3 the charge pipe takes a different route to the S3.

    Has anyone got any info or pictures for making one?

    Titanium! How much was that? So he wont want to share the template with other ASN members! I'll have to make my own.

    This isn't the shielding Westy is after... S3's have all this in place already... he wants a shield for the hose coming off the turbo as this gets fried if not protected...

    LiquidS3 has done a shield for his and Sam Bryant has also done similar (see pic below)...

    Not yet. Car is in the garage getting relentless mani DP and cat fitted at the min.

    Will do it when I get it back.

    Just trying to find a heat mat material to stick to it to try and help with the heat absorption / reflection.

    I might be able to make a couple of these in aluminium depending on how much sheet my mate has left.

    Just ordered a 1.5mm thick sheet to knock up a heat shield.

    Leigh or liquid, can you confirm the length and size of the bolts you used to screw the shield to the rocker cover?
