exhaust manifold heat shield

Can i remove the heat shield that covers the stock exhaust manifold and not have to worry about anything melting??
the shield is cracked in a couple places and makes a god awful noise when my truck is idling so i wanna just remove it. it should be ok right, cause when you run headers there is no shield. just throwin it out there to see what people think

Re: exhaust manifold heat shield

you can also cut away the spots that rub/rattle or maybe use some mounting washers under the bolts/nut to help hold it in place. mine is all cracked but doesn't rattle (yet).
then you can have your shield and not worry about it, just a thought.

Re: exhaust manifold heat shield

GOOD NEWS - BAD NEWS

Good news - i removed the damn rattling heat shield, it was cracked in several places as you can see, one of the bolt holes was cracked all the way around



BAD NEWS - after i removed the heat shied i found out my header had a 3 to 4 inch long crack in it


GOOD NEWS - i guess i'm gonna have to get a set of headers

BAD NEWS - I'm still broke

Re: exhaust manifold heat shield

What engine do you have? I will sell you my stock manifold for cheap if its the right size. I should have my DT header finished Monday.

That heat shield is a pain. I repaired mine several times and finally got it to stop rattling.
