DEI’s new Oil Filter Heat Shield can be used on high performance engines to keep oil at its best operating temperature.
Without protection, oil filters located between the oil pan and engine can be affected by the head radiated from exhaust headers, and can subsequently suffer heat soak. With most oil designed to work optimally between 180°F to 210°F this can lead to many performance issues.
DEI’s Oil Filter Shield effectively blocks radiant heat that can alter oil viscosity or cause a thermal breakdown.
DEI’s Oil Filter Heat Shield is universal in size so it may be trimmed to fit and used for any size oil filter. They’re available in two sizes: 3.5” – 4.5” x 4” (part #010740) or 2.5” – 3.5” x 3” (part #010741), and are sold as a convenient three pack.
