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!


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 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice piece but... Put one on my GR STI when I installed my Cobb catted DP. I've now heard a rattle at ~2600RPM. After re-checking it appears that the heatshield is either touching or very close to the metal coolant line running to the turbocharger. I believe this is the source of the noise I've heard. I loosened the three bolts and re-adjusted the shield as far back toward the firewall as it would go but find it still very close to that hardline. My plan is to remove the intercooler, pull the shield out and grind a relief in it to properly clear this line. Kind of a pain. The shield itself is otherwise a very nice piece. Thick material, nice laser-ethed Cobb logo and good fitment (other than the above-mentioned interference.) Would recommend but would also recommend interference checks and remediation _before_ buttoning things up to avoid having to take things apart later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding When the item is shipped, it comes with a peel away cover, sort of what comes on phone screen covers before putting them on, keeping the stainless steel finish from getting scratched and nicked during shipping. For those worrying about removing the intercooler, there is no need. I merely needed to unbolt the bolts that hold it in place (same as removal) and lift the passenger side of the IC to wiggle it it. After install, it looks much better and covers the aftermarket downpipe nicely; couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and simple Bought this recently after my turbo back purchase from COBB and thus got rid of my stock heat shield. Went with COBB yet again and love the look and easy install. Note: make sure you keep stock heat shield bracket to install this. Fit right in there perfect and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dope Installed real nice. Used a dremel tool to increase the space around the wastegate actuator rod just to tickle my fancy in case vibrations caused the shield to touch. Other than that, this thing is suhweet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not fit ADM 2016 STI without modification Finally got around to fitting the stage 2 setup on my 2016 ADM STI, had downpipe ceramic coated and decided to do the COBB heatshield at the same time however when attempting to fit, it fouls on the brake booster and the bent lower corner interferes with the steering knuckle/rods on RHD, kinda disappointed to have to hack up such a nice product especially after paying for it to be professionally ceramic coated first as well, might want to reconsider listing it as compatible for and RHD models COBB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product!! I had this installed along with my Cobb Downpipe. This is highly recommended to anybody upgrading their downpipe or stock heat shield. This fits perfectly in the engine bay providing less chances of getting heat soaked if you are running a TMIC. Great quality overall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turbo Heat Shikd After installing the aftermarket downpipe there was a decent size vacant space coming right off the turbo. I drove the car for about a week like this entering the summer months. I would occasionally put my hand near and around the inner cooler that first week and could feel the heat radiate right into the bottom of the inner cooler. I knew immediately. It needed protection. I went with COBB's heat shield because I trust them and know they make quality work. Heat sheiks installed with ease and heat is definitely more sustained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice look When I bought this I had all my friends helping me with this and a bunch of other install, needless to say they were jealous that something like this product isn't available for their car. Just make sure you tighten it good, I think it's only 3 bolts holding it down compared to the 6 or 7 oem, so tighten to insure no rattling occurs.
