DEI Titanium heat shield for tubing
Want to cut down on heat in the footwell? There are a bunch of things you can do ranging from gold foil to ceramic coating to insulation on the tunnel, but the most effective thing you can do to control radiant heat is add an insulating pad with an air gap.
DEI makes a wide range of heat control products, and this one is ideal for downpipes and other hot exhaust components. It'll protect up to 1350F - more common fiberglass shields will start to fail at 900F.
It's a two-layer material. The outer layer is woven lava rock with a very high silica material on the inner layer. Stand offs provide the air gap needed, and they're riveted in place. Clamps are included. No, we're not sure why they call it "titanium" either but it's got about the right color. Fits pipes up to 3" in diameter.
12"x6". Suitable for all sorts of cars including engine conversions. For turbo Miatas, we recommend two pieces for a 2.5" downpipe so you can shield the area near the accelerator as well as further back. This works better than a single 24" long piece due to the bend in the downpipe. 3" downpipes have less room for shielding so there's really only room for one piece - check the clearances on your car.
