New from Improved Racing – the C6/C7 Corvette Oil Cooler Heat Shield. This heat shield insulates from extreme exhaust heat while being lightweight and easy to install. See more details below.
Improved Racing and RaceFlux have jointly developed an exhaust heat shield to insulate oil cooler adapters and oil coolers from intense exhaust heat. The shield can also be used to insulate transmissions, differentials, and other components from exhaust heat.
Although designed specifically to fit the catalytic converters on C6 and C7 Corvettes, the heat shield can be used on most aftermarket header collectors. The design also allows for installation in an orientation that provides longer pipe coverage of 13 inches in length on smaller diameter exhaust pipes.
The exterior layer is manufactured from basalt fabric (also known as “lava rock”) and has a maximum continuous operating temperature of up to 900°C (1,652°F). The shield is stuffed with ceramic fabric for insulation and the inner layer is made from silica fabric, which has a maximum operating temperature of up to 1,350°C (2,462°F). Stainless steel zip ties and clamps are included to accommodate a variety of exhaust pipe sizes from 1.75″ to 7.00” in diameter.
- Designed to fit 4.125″ to 7.0″ (105mm to 178mm) OD pipe
- Overall dimensions: 5.7″ x 13″ (145mm x 330mm)
- Includes two 155-178mm stainless steel worm clamps, four 33-57mm stainless steel worm clamps, and four 190mm max OD stainless steel zip ties
- Construction: Basalt fabric outer layer, ceramic insulation, silica inner layer, stainless steel clips and rivets
