Default Heat Shields

Another question for owners:

How many of you have heat shields installed to protect your engine mount tubes from exhaust components? Of the Cardinals we've seen, some have had them, some have not. Any pictures would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Don't have heat shields to protect the engine mount tubes but do have a shield above the crossover tube to reduce heat radiation to the oil pan and oil.

Only the crossover tube up front has a SS heat shield held on with two brackets. Other engine tubes have slip on heat shielding for tubing that passes close to any exhaust pipe.

I also don't have heat shields to protect the engine mount tubes, but have a shield above the crossover tube to reduce heat radiation to the oil pan. AP
