The heat shield behind the turbo that covers the exhaust manifold, has anyone left that one off without any problems? Searched and couldn't find too much.

In my opinion it looks a lot better without them on there. If you take them off it will get a lil warmer under the hood but its not going to hurt anything.

yeh exactly because without it, it looks like a show car. NO, I finished building my motor today and realized I left it off. anyway I just finished putting it back on, I want this thing to be as good as I can get it.

i took the front one off because the sp61gt would not fit without touching it an d i didn't feel like hacking it to make it fit so i took it off, it does seem to give more heat.

Does anyone notice that it seems to be louder?

i have been running without the front one and with a turbo blanket for some time now with no ill effects. that said, when i had my blanket off my stock ic pipes got extremely hot to the point they started to melt some on the inside for some reason. {shrug} your call

i havent had mine on for about a week, not because it looks 'cool' but because the damn thing doesnt fit with a ddp on there. i gotta hammer the back end out and make it fit. havent noticed much of a difference but i am paranoid about my o2 sensor wires.
