IMO, centering the hole properly in the heat shield and including larger studs or spacers (as I used in my solution, documented in post #12 of this thread) are the proper solutions to this, not just throwing more washers at it.

I sent you an email on 6/23 directing you to this thread and my solution in post #12, so you should not have been waiting to hear from me. After that email was sent, I have not received an email from you.
TboneZX3 - I'm sorry for the miscommunication. It seems that you were the only one that experienced this particular issue so we do believe it is an isolated incident, however if anyone else has had this issue please contact me as we must document any common issues. I appreciate everyones patience, thank you again.
