Please can anyone confirm that the following item is called a "heat shield" that covers the manifold??

Its not clear in the picture but the "heat shield" is rusting apart.

Should I buy a new heat shield or purchase a new manifold??

Any ideas guys and gals??

:rolleyes

You are correct.

The heat shield that covers my cat conv rusted through and would make a god awful racket. I finally took that POS off and it quiet from then on. You don't have to use the heat shield, it just keeps the engine bay cooler.

When I remove the heat shield, is it the monifold or the cat conv that is present?

And where can I get a nice shiney one from?

rip the shit off. Then go out and buy spray on ceramic header coating. Take the manifold off the engine and coat the outside with ceramic. Looks better, works better.
