Catalytic Converter Heat Shields for C7/C7 ZO6
Prevent catalytic converter heat soak from raising your oil temperatures.
Due to the location of the stock converters heat soak that can raise your oil temperature on the track is a common concern. Help prevent elevated oil temperature with DEI TITANIUM PIPE SHIELD. DEIís Titanium Pipe Shield combines the high heat tolerance of DEIís proprietary LR fiber technology with a unique rivet-based clamp shield design to improve heat dissipation and cooling. Titanium Pipe Shield provides heat protection up to 1350įF. LR fiber technology is a two-ply material. The outer layer is made from pulverized and stranded lava rock into a proprietary tightly woven weave for durability and strength. The inside material is made of a special high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) designed to withstand 350 degrees more heat than glass fiber. This proprietary fiber technology combined with DEIís unique shield standoff bracket design provides an air gap between the shield and pipe that together provides the maximum potential for cooling and heat dissipation.

I think I am going to pick one of these up soon for my Z51 just to see if it makes any difference down here in the TX heat. I should have just had my cat pipes ceramic coated while they were off, but oh well!

If I do it, I will likely only do the one near the oil cooler.

I have it from a good source that by using only one, that the temperature difference between the after cat exhaust will make your car sound like a Voltswagen Diesel.....

Need to explain why there would be any exhaust sound difference whatsoever, doesn't make sense.

Can folks chime in on their experience with the DEI CAT cover on the track? Really curious as to how effective this is to lower Oil Temps.

How well do these keep your oil cool? Do you need both cats covered? Will it hurt the cats/exhaust?
