Description

The COBB Tuning Stainless Steel Heat Shield is an attractive direct replacement for the unsightly factory piece. This turbo heat shield can shroud a completely stock turbo and exhaust system or can go hand-in-hand with an aftermarket downpipe install, without the necessary trimming the stock heat shield requires. The COBB SS Heat Shield prevents waste-heat from the turbocharger and exhaust system from radiating into your engine bay, reducing intake and intercooler heat soak and lowering under-hood temperature. The COBB Tuning SS Heat Shield is constructed of rugged stainless steel and features a laser-etched COBB logo to let everyone know you have the goods under the hood! The heat shield is easy to install, requiring only basic hand tools for installation. Couple this with the COBB Tuning Downpipe with cast-stainless bellmouth for total heat management! Precision cut stainless steel ensures that the heat shield can withstand years of abuse. The COBB logo is laser etched and can be clearly seen no matter how much heat is being deflected. A great addition to show cars and race cars alike! Note: Designed for stock turbo applications.


Why?

The COBB Tuning stainless steel heat shield is in house designed and a replacement for the factory turbo heat shield found on most vehicles. A modification which goes hand in hand with an aftermarket downpipe install. A heat shield prevents the venting of heat caused from exhaust gas temperatures to vent into the engine bay there by reducing heat soak into key components that benefit from cooler ambient temperature, such as the intercooler. Note: Designed for stock turbo applications.

Subaru SS Turbo Heatshield is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, Broke in a few years. Installed this heat shield on my 2011 WRX with the Cobb downpipe and installed it at about 28K miles and I currently have 43K. The shield is already cracked at two points. In my opinion this should not happen this soon. Its unfortunate, it looks awesome in the engine bay (minus the new found noise from the cracks).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fitment I bought this after putting the Cobb down pipe on, and man does it look good! The packaging was great; the brushed metal had a plastic film on it to prevent scratching during shipping. The fitment was spot on, but install was a bit of a pain. **Heads up** I ended up sheering one of the original heat shield bolts when trying to get this on, and in my attempts to drill he bolt out, I ended up ruining the upper heat shield bracket, so I ended up ordering a new one. While that was on the way in, the heat shield was only being held on by 2 of the 3 bolts, and at around 1800 RPMs it made a horrible rattling noise. Take away: make sure you use all 3 bolts when you install this! All around great purchase. Make sure you're comfortable taking off the TMIC if you're installing yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality piece Was very pleased with the quality as always from COBB. However, upon instal it was obvious fitment was not perfect as the wastegate was touching the heatshield. I was able to fix this by removing it and bending two of the corners by hand. After reinstalling fitment was good. If not for that, I would have given 5 stars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but broke at 2 years I loved this piece from day 1. It looked great in the engine bay and gave it a nice little bling, but not too much. However, the lower-passenger side bolt area broke and it rattles now as I drive the car. (The metal to which the bolt holds onto broke right off and it won't hold in place now) I think it's a great addition to our engine bays, but cracking under regular use is kinda weak. I may try to fix it but may ultimately end up buying another brand heat shield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fit and finish is great. I like this because it is a 1 piece laser cut design. I looked at Perrin, grim speed, Spt and they are multi piece designs that are welded together. No thanks. This item is clean

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Stock Replacement I bought this to replace the stock heat shield vs modifying for stage 2. It's much easier to deal with. The stock heat shield is whack! Quality part from Cobb.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight fit It just didn't fit behind the TMIC very well. I did not want to take it off, so I had to wiggle the heat shield around to actually get it underneath the TMIC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks so much better I bought this a few months ago and it looks amazing so much better than the stock one!
