On centrifugal blower kits like those from Vortech or ProCharger, even though the blower itself is driven by the engine, all the system’s intake piping is in/near the engine and radiator, which means more heat exposure. Using turbo heat shields controls that heat, keeping it inside the system for more power and out of the engine bay, where it c
