We know you’re itching to get wrenching and driving, and what better way to build some momentum than with a simple install using free materials! Temperature extremes are always an enemy to an engine, now that the frost and bitter cold most of us have to contend with has melted it’s time to start thinking about the opposite extreme. So unplug your block heaters, check your freeze plugs, and fire up those engines.

Heatshield Products is helping us to get moving this racing season with a $500 giveaway, open to anyone and completely free to enter. That much reflective and insulative material should be enough to address all your heat-transfer concerns on at least one vehicle.

Common areas to address are of course exhaust related, from header wrap to heatshields for catalytic convertors but don’t forget to think about areas you want to keep cool. Intake manifold runners and valleys, spark plug boots, turbo compressor sections and more. Apart from the gains in comfort maintaining cabin temperature, performance gains can be had through minimizing heat soak or insulating areas that benefit from the expansion heat provides — like turbocharger turbines.

So if you’re feeling the heat even as the spring is only beginning, check out how you can win $500 of Heatshield Products.
