I'm personally using regular paint, although if I didn't have the blanket on there and was souly using the shield I'd say some high temp paint might be a good idea.

Paint is drying on mine. I'll post pics in this thread and also my build thread. Prob tomorrow though by the time paint dries. Just put the last coat on so I can drop the vinyl down and clear it tomorrow.

I went with a turbo blanket. The stock heat shield bolts were seized when we removed it to replace the up-pipe, and it was trash afterwards. The aftermarket heat shields are primarily for aesthetics, and so should be used in conjunction with a turbo blanket (or the OEM heat shield).

I clicked the link in your quote and it worked for me just now. I'm using the latest version of Firefox, if that matters.

Yea,The problem is on my end. I downloaded windows.7.codec.pack.v4.0.9. BIG MISTAKE!!! It completely screwed up my computer! This will take hours to fix. I don't even know where to start, thanks.

I'm glad this subject was brought up because I don't really know what heat soak is. I never had a heat shield until I got my wrx tuned and my tuner advised me to get the grimmspeed heat shield so I did. Later I read, as people have posted, that the best thing to do is modify the stock one since it works better. How would I know if I'm experiencing heat soak?

It wasn't the codec pac. It was the crap that came with it on the install that screwed with my browser. I removed everything related to the codec pac and reloaded Firefox. now everything is OK. Beware of windows.7.codec.pack.v4.0.9. The internet is a buzz with people having the same problem.
