Since you polished the exhaust manifold and turbo, did you leave off the exhaust heat shield?

Just put the cotton-picking thing on your car!

It's pretty and all but we want some actual performance results.

Since your post of the completed product dates back to Jan. 2015, the question isn't what you "can" do. The question: Did you reinstall the heat shield? Or, has the exhaust/turbo not been installed?

A small detail about exhaust manifolds and turbo's mounted in the rear compartment, would be they are nearly unnoticeable. The opposite applies to engines with front mount exhaust.

The factory heat shield basically protects the coolant reservoir.

If you relocate with an upgraded recovery tank then the aluminum OEM heat shield really serves very little benefit.

I'll assume you replaced it. What's the storage capacity of the factory reservoir?

I don't usually quote...when responding to question but..

It really does not matter so much. I would at least use something universal aluminum and from say a company like Be Kool.

In reality if you plan your cooling system and temperature control correctly you should only need a very small tank.


I have a 1.6 SuperCharged MINI with a rather high HP and TQ output and use a very simple Be Kool universal tank that has worked well since about 2004. It may hold 8 to 12 oz of fluid? The tank mounted inches from the OBX header.


On the PT I would think about a tank closer to the outlet port of the thermostat housing and just getting it completely away form the Turbofold.

Here is something to think about. Heat shields are to protect components around a high heat generated part but the negative effect is that that part generating the heat also retains the heat and in some circumstance through heat soak increases the heat of the part in the first place. Better to relocate parts that could be effected by heat and let the heat generating part have some air space to cool off.

I definitely agree to this point.

Thanks for the details.
