Heat Shield for Performance Intake System

As a sheet metal fabricator, we sometimes get to work on some really fun and unique products. This is one of them!

We were recently approached by an aftermarket automotive company to create a heat shield for a performance intake system. The challenge was to develop a very uniquely shaped component to this system that is fabricated from a single piece of metal vs. having multiple pieces fastened together. This construction reduces potential fail points, maximizes the shielding of heat and also looks great, particularly after we powder-coated the components in a beautiful black finish. Every gear-head knows that under-the-hood aesthetics coupled with performance are everything!

Our production team helped with the end design and cut, formed, welded, powder coated and assembled each piece. With our highly skilled team we are able to create hundreds of unique products quickly and efficiently.
