Advantage is keeping the engine bay heat down, specifically the brake booster which was known to crack from overheating in earlier models, dunno about BA onwards though.
I'd put the shield back on :wink:


You mean the EF onwards plastic boosters yeah?

My thermo fan's probably work just a little harder due to the extractors, but i wouldn't think much.

EA-ED have metal boosters. Onwards are plastic, and i too have seen many broken plastic boosters. What a great idea it was changing to them. They can't be reco'd like metal boosters, don't have the lifespan of metal boosters, and to top it off are made from something that is harder to produce & recycle than metal too.

Cheers

That's something i haven't seen yet. Maybe yours has higher exhaust temp's due to the engine being supercharged?

Sams missens ef has a fair amount of cruise cable missing, he isn't running extractors, so its not just the pipes. I run full custom pipes and hasn't melted clutch cable or throttle cables. Might make up a cover but they are an unusual shape. There shown in show us your pipes help would be good.

The sheild also discreetly hides extractors from sight.

Any performance mod is illegal for P platers in NSW lol, chips, extractors, catback, intake etc etc. so it wouldnt hurt to cove them up.

I thought that was P platers anywhere in the country now? Hide them under a stock cover & you probably wont get noticed for them if the exhaust is quiet enough.

I've had my extractors for over 100,000 kms, no heat related issues. I do run thermo fan's in the old EB Ghia tho.

Cheers
