Hi All

I am getting very close to having everything ready to install my M45 SC but now need to source or fabricate some sort of heat shield / blanket and was wondering what alternatives there are to the TDR Heat Shield Blanket which seems to be rather expensive for what it is ?

I was thinking of heat wrapping the manifold pipes then fabricating something using these to sit between the manifold and the charger :

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heat-Shield-Aluminised-Material-Mat-Exhaust-500MM-X-1000MM-New-Rally-Race-/121037148662?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item1c2e6051f6

Total cost around £40

Would this work ?

Any other suggestions welcome please, what do you SC guys use ?

Many thanks,
Tim

Thanks Mexico - I have ordered some similar spec cloth, is it ok for it to have direct contact with the manifold or have you kept an airgap ?
