The heat shield needs to have something else to it, be it a coating or insulation or both. Right now, it's like saying you are using a frying pan as a heat shield from the stove top, which is at say 1000 deg F.
check ur messages please. Also I went to aerogel site. Which blankets are you suggesting. I'd like to look it over thanks

I've had my 355 for 3 years. The header was cracked on inspection at purchase. Replaced with SECA manifolds and Capristo exhuast, with no problems since.

Life is not a dress rehearsal
