Aftermarket *tubular manifold* heatshield options?

I ordered a tubular manifold, just wondering what are some options as far as heatshields for that go... not for the for wall, but for the manifold its self.

thanks

Which manifold, and did you ask the manufacturer if they had anything available?

I heat wrapped mine... Had it tuned by AMS and have ran the car very hard, no trouble so far and the car is kept a lot cooler with the heat wrap.

I am glad there are other people interested in a heat shield.

I hate the exhaust wrap. It looks ugly. It soaks up water and causes corrosion on your manifold. I prefer some thing more aesthetically pleasing.

Hopefully some one will step up to the plate and make something that aesthetically pleasing and fully functional.

I am asking cause i dont know... could you have the manifold ceramic coated in lew of heat sheild? or will it still get too hot?

you can always have it coated. but I dont think that is *nearly* enough. think about it- the coating is only a mere hundredths of an inch thick. theres no way a material can have that high of an R (insulation) value high enough to do anything.

I prefer to wrap and seal my mani. and a head shieald over the mani + a fire wall heatshiels are always [necessary] added bonuses

http://www.zircotec.com/page/frequent_questions/5
These guys claims and up to a 33% reduction in surface temps. and up to 50c reduction in under the hood temps.
I looked at other coatings on the internet and most were claiming 20%-30% reduction in surface temp. I did see some wild claims of 70% reduction in heat, which i am skeptical to believe.

I can't find any good credible test results for heat shielding, ceramic coating and exhaust wrap. If anyone can find a good test results please post it up.

30% reduction in surface temp is pretty good. I do think the more heat protection the better. The important factor is to reduce the radiation temperature to the other components in the engine. A ceramic coating will reduce the temperature of the manifold but a heat shield will reduce the temperature of the other components by shielding off heat radiation.

Think this one is probably the nicest out there..

It's around $300, which doesn't seem too bad for a titanium heatshield.

Ok, I know something of this. We use the Full-Race tubular exhaust manifold and it gets hot. Very hot. Beautifully made, it flows better and we make more power at higher rpm but it does generate some heat.

I had wrapped the manifold prior to install. I know people like to coat them which can certainly help too but I wrapped. The manifold, under race condition, burned the wrap off over a season. Really, so that it was hanging in pieces that I would peel off (with gloves when cool).

We are now using two solutions:

- wrap your cam sensor and boost sensor and lines with reflective heat tape.
- use MAP's Heat shield for tubular manifolds.

The MAP shield bolts up easily, is very nicely made and the price is reasonable ($185). You can find them here www.maperformance.com.

Boy, that is great looking and I love that it is titanium. Interestingly, it fits over the manifold and against the motor as opposed to against the firewall, which I like, though I wonder if it is deep enough for tubular manifolds and larger turbos. It would be a shame to get it home and not be able to shape it a bit if needed, as titanium is not so flexible.

Nice work Kracka, I should think this, with your cam shield and MAP firewall shield would do the trick.
