The advantages of running an aftermarket heat shield are improving the heat transfer between the hot turbocharger/downpipe combo and the top mount intercooler situated above it. There are also some other advantages to reducing engine bay heat, but they all go back to reducing the thermal transfer of this excess heat into the components in the engine bay that carry charge air and induction air.
This heat shield retains all of the factory brackets and utilizes factory mount points. It is compatible with most downpipes but is specifcally designed to provide clearance around divorced wastegate designs.
Each time we tell people the name of our business, we have to explain why we chose to call ourselves Nameless Performance. It's quite simple really – it exemplifies our business model and our sense of humor. As eBay and the internet provide a flood of overseas products into enthusiast hands, paired with little to no customer service, customer involvement or qualification, it became evident to us that a radical alternative was necessary. As enthusiasts of pretty much everything mechanical, we have had very few experiences with manufacturers that were as personal and connected as we would prefer. So we decided to make that company a reality. When discussing what to call this company, it was evident that using our names or some pairing of hyperbole and motorsports catch phrases was not going to convey anything about us or our customers or why we do what we do. So why not put out a name that begs a question.
