A/C heat shield

Haha, in that case I have one used one from gbodyparts that's scratched and another just back from the powdercoaters up for grabs

Lighter..therefore faster..jk took mine of this spring after snappin a spark plug. was kind of wonderin the same thing. didnt notice anything after all summer driving it that way.
