check out my intake rain shield

They call it a heat shield, but we all know it doesn't do anything with heat. I do hope it will deflect the rain that comes in from the hole.

yes, it's basically a piece of sheet metal covering half the intake. it is about half an inch away from the intake.

i wouldn't think so.. i have a dryer vent from the bottom, so when the air shoots up, it would actaully keep the air close to the filter. i saw some guy dyno with it and he said he didn't see any loss

that looks more likely heat shield

FYI...water won't get in unless you pop the hood

I see you have SR....no offence but that thing is usless and I think it'll restrict your air flow

Yesterday when I installed it, it was a beautiful day and the heat shield was brand-new, no water stains. Today it rained for half the day. When I got home, I popped the hood and saw lots of water stains on the heat shield. So I guess it does protect the filter.

interesting idea, but I don't think you really need one with a SR. But if it is proven to not restrict air flow...

What do you mean? CAI has even less of a need for a heat shield.
Either way, I think the heat shield is non-effective...
+1 for Bling factor though!

Edit: Nevermind, I think you meant it to keep the water out... not to restirct heat...

i doubt it restricts airflow, i have the injen heat shieldon my sri and theres plenty of clearance for air to get in thru the filter. it DOES block the water from falling on the filter tho, as i said in another thread just like this one... i polished my sri and the heat shield two days ago and it rained like CRAZY yesterday and now the heat shield is covered in water spots. plus i can tell water will get in there because i can see just barely thru the side gap between the hood and the driverside fender. i can see the polished heatshield.

I totally agree! The gutter on the engine bay isn't enought to cover it. I got an INJEN heat shield too.



well water marks are pretty easy to take it off, just use metal polish. And the heat shield only covers the top of the filter so there is plenty of room for the air to get in.

I dont know if it happens to me or everyone else? my filter always seems to get dented from something... rocks maybe pebbles? i dont know... So i get a new filter all the time. What do you think, should i get one of these heatshields to prevent objects from damaging my filter?
