need help, intake heat shield

521 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  vwbrvr6
I need a heat shield to protect my intake from sucking all that hot engine air. Has anyone done this themselves or do they make one for the '93 vr6 motor. A customized one will work but what material do I use? Or is a box around the air filter pointing toward an outside hole so it can suck in the denser colder air into the engine. Hope this makes sense.

I used a fireproof ceiling tile. I think this is one of the best things to use. It isolates the filter completly of any heat from the engine. I covered the side that is by the engine with A/C vent material, kinda like aluminium. and painted the whole thing black. I used rubber tubing that covers A/C lines or water heater pipes for the top to seal with the hood. Its totaly cool, Pun intended
