This heat shield is designed to work with popular (Full-Race, ETS, MAPerformance, STM, Driven Fab, Hypertune, JM Fabrications, BP Autosports, Sheepey Built, etc), stock replacement tubular turbo manifolds for the 2008+ Mitsubishi EVO X. It is highly recommended for all EVO X’s with plastic valve covers (2010+), which tend to melt with the use of most aftermarket manifolds. It is also recommended for all EVO X’s in racing applications, even with metal valve covers (2008-2009). It is a superior heat management solution compared to ceramic coating or header wrap and won’t rattle or vibrate much like metal heat shields.
