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's 90deg outside,your at a fast food pickup window line,you finally get your food and go to pull out into the street,you try to beat the traffic out of the drive,you hit the gas and NOTHING!! Then a semi hits you broadside and you DIE from heat soak. Oh wait,it's a Subrau...they lived.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

Geez that I'd like to avoid that scenario. So you're saying by buying say a turbo blanket I will drastically reduce my engine bay temps to avoid situations like that?

I decided I'm going with the stock modded shield,a nice titanium wrap and cover the intercooler tanks with heat reflective foil 'cause I cant afford a bigger one.
