    There is a heat shield, next to the fuel pump on the V-6 engine. Can some one take some pictures and any measurements would help. Do not have one, will probably have to build one.

    Hopefully someone will post the factory shield. I attempted to mimic the original with a license plate. Aluminum and easy to cut and bend.

    Here's an original. Made of 2 pieces, the curved piece has a bead rolled into the middle as a form of stiffener or anti vibration. The bracket piece appears to be spot welded. Notice the minimal amount of clearance. s4 view of front bottom, s3 view of front top, s2 view looking down, s1 view of front top from left headlight bucket.

    Why is that exhaust exiting under the radiator? No wonder you need a heat shield.

    Rear exit interferes with the ross steering box.
    Sometimes when you only have two right manifolds you have to make due with what you have.
    It actually assists with idle speed on the odd fire by increasing exhaust pressure.

    Factory setup, even the head pipes are stock. fwiw, the radiator fan flow actually keeps under hood temps cooler than a new vehicle. The manifold exits by Cyl #1 and then wraps down and back by the fuel pump.
