147 manifold heat sheild
what is the definitive answer on this, i cant be arsed with a shelid that is gonna repeatedly break due to its flimsy design. so i have come up with a few options some of which i have already kind of ruled out.
1.replace the sheild and claim on my warranty direct warranty, itll break again but im going travelling in a year so ill be selling the car anyway.
2. make my own sturdy one out of 1mm tin sheet metal (take off old one plug gaps fill with plaster and make a mould then shape teh tin over teh mould and hey presto ive made my own one) but wont be very warranty friendly if something happens.
3. heat wrap which ive already ruled out really as i dont want a cracked manifold from trapped heat.
4. take it off and forget about it - will mean that alot of heat is in teh engine bay and may damage something else along with reduced performance.
any ideas from the alfa oracle?
