I was thinking about pulling the shield and wrapping my header with thermal wrap all the way down to the cat and then replace the shield for 2 reasons, 1) keeping the heat in the header is supposed to improve the exhaust flow through the header and 2) it also cuts down on heat built up in the engine compartment.
