lmao....... So he didnt think of moving the wires lol.....
Mine is no way near the metal so is fine...
The heat gaskets keep alot of heat in... With the gaskets taken off it allows air to get in and aid the cooling :)

I'm running without a heat shield, no problem. Speedr33per's right about the wiring though, spend some time to make sure they're out of harms way.
