    Question Heat shield around intercooler box?

    Hi every one,

    I am going to change the heat shield underneath the intercooler box soon. Whilst I am at it I was thinking of wrapping the whole box in some sort of foil.

    I have seen a few photo's on this forum before (I think it may have been Brav's) which showed someones car with some sort of gold foil. Does anyone know what it was?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the replies Fella's.

    I'm over in the UK and haven't seen it on any cars here so didn't know what it was. I shall get some ordered from the above racing suppliers ASAP.

    Thanks again

    James.

    P.S. I've got to say your site is very informative and you guys have some mental Nobles

    It's my understanding that the gold film is the most reflective available.
    And at around $20.00 a square foot iot should be

    Just did mine with material ordered from Jegs (Thermo-Tec) Made a template from cardboard and then cut the shielding to that just for a little front protection stop-gap. I need will pull the entire box and redo it all. The underside original install is peeling off.

    If the underside shielding is pealing off, but intact, use some Dow 736 Compound and glue it back. It should not come loose again.

    Another place where the shield comes loose is above the front turbo in the bodywork. Again, glue it back with 736.

    I use the Thermotech stick on shields on other installations, but find that it doesn't really stick for very long in high heat conditions. I have to replace it every year, or more often in some places.

    I have also found that the spray on adhesives don't work above the exhaust system, where the heat may exceed 300F.
