UPDATE 2 WEEKS CUTOFF FOR MEMBERS WHO WANT ONE (5th MAY)

As per title, I'm keen to run a group buy on Stainless Steel extractor/exhaust manifold heat shields, to suit EA-AUs 6cyls.
MADE FROM 1.5 or 1.6mm Stainless. (have to double check what the sheet metal place made mine from)

I have also knocked $10 off original price in the hope of more interest!

Being ran in conjunction with Boosted + have Waggins go ahead

These heatshields, esp the long version, dramatically decrease the temp of your brake booster, and will certainly prolong its life as they are known to split when exposed to excessive heat. Mine was almost too hot too touch, now its nowhere near that hot - you can safely leave your hand on it without fear of melting skin.
Whilst I cannot measure temp differences, it certainly feels a heck of a lot cooler in the engine bay with a shield fitted.
PLUS
They also look mint!

PLAN:

There will be two types made available:
1- Full length, from just behind the power steer pump to about an inch of the firewall - TO SUIT CARS WITH NO DIPSTICK eg MANUAL, EL AUTO Will cover pipes 1-6
2- Shorter length, from just behind the power steer pump to about 4 inches from the firewall - TO SUIT AUTO CARS WITH DIPSTICKS
These shorter sheilds will cover pipes 1-5

The full length shields will have 5 bolts, along with a longer angle piece to suit.
The shorter length will have 4 bolts, along with a shorter angle piece.

Fitting will be as simple as loosening manifold bolts slightly, slipping in angle, tightening manifold bolts, then attaching shield to angle via the 4/5 bolts. (nuts welded to angle)



Looking for a minimum of 10 members from here and boosted to get the buy under way.
It is up to the buyer to list what length shield they want.


Turnover from final payment, expect 3 weeks at the longest. It will take around 3 days to have the metal cut and bent up for me, and then 2-3 days for welding and drilling, with a day for test fitting and alterations if necessary.


PRICE
$140 full length, no dipstick.
$130 shorter length, dipstick.
$20 Post Aus Wide,



Any questions please PM me. I dont want this thread turning out like the last one :roll:

If genuinely interested please start a list with your username and the shield you would like!

I have one of each made up, longer version on the car (with the short angle)

PICS!

LONG VERSION (please excuse oil and ratty rocker cover, and fingerprints everywhere)

from my experience in making and selling these same heat shields previously, i offer you the following advice in good spirit, for a smooth group buy.

- consider suppling some cork gasket for inbetween the shield and the mounting angle to prevent vibrations and loosening of screws, especially on cammed up cars that shake alot. it also acts as an insulator... it dosnt cost much

- The mounting angle may need to be 2mm thick for a more stable shield, otherwise you may end up with a harmonic vibration noise. it also prevents warping of the shiled during welding which stops the shield from sitting flat.

- make sure that the guys welding the nuts weld them on square to the face, otherwise you wont be able to tighten the screws properly, very important.

- if you havent already, please confirm that it fits over all extractor types...

hope this helps your cause...

Yeh they fit over both types of Pacemakers, so they should fit over everything as I dont know any chunkier extractors than the 4480s. I did not mention this though, good point.
Angle mount should be fine, I've had mine for a while with no issues.
Nuts will be welded dead flat, no worries there.
I have a jig made up for drilling the holes too, so theres no chance of bending the steel or drilling incorrectly.
Cheers

If your car has a dipstick then yep you need the short one, which means the last pipe wont be covered.
Are you sure your car has a dipstick as its a manual?

Auto boxes on pre ELs have a dipstick for the auto box - which is why you have to miss the last pipe.

If you have a manual, then you dont have a gearbox dipstick, so you can have the long shield.
