One of the newest items in the Heatshield Products thermal-barrier family is our Lava Oil Filter Heat Shield™. What’s it do? For cars running headers and/or turbocharger piping near the oil filter, the Lava Oil Filter Shield™ creates a thermal barrier around the oil filter to deflect up to 80 percent of the ambient heat. It also provides a layer of protection for the oil filter against road debris.
To demonstrate just how well the Lava Oil Filter Shield™ works, we stopped at AntiVenom Performance in Seffner, Florida, and made use of their 2000 Corvette test car. The car featured a set of Kooks headers, a mild cam upgrade and a few other high-performance modifications. Our test was done in the middle of a hot Florida day, with ambient temps in the mid-90s.
