carbon fiber heat shield

5 posts in this topic

I bought a carbon fiber heat shield and I need to put it on my new gyt-r titanium header. The shield was for a 450f I believe, but the bend of it is not far off my gytr header. There are no mounting bolts on the header so I was thinking I could use some type of hose clamp to put it on.

Can anyone help me out with what to do here? This is the guard

I've seen heat shields put on with clamps, but I don't know which clamp is the right kind. I don't want to spend money on getting anything welded :)

I welded studs onto my PC t-4 header and used "acorn" nuts to finish it out. BTW..I used the same exact shield

Get universal CV boot clamps from any local part store. You need the tool to install them but it's really inexpensive. They are stainless steel and when installed correctly won't come loose. They are very low profile.

What tool do I need to install them? Have you used the clamps and tool?

Would i be drilling a hole through the band and then putting a screw in with the threads facing up? :)
