I just ordered a replacement for mine (na) and asked about the turbo
pad. The cost is like 4x more. From this mfr there is a heat shield. I
was initially thinking I would get one because it would probably add to
the life of the pad. With the cost considered, I ordered the one
without the heat shield. I may affix a piece of heat shielding material
my friend liberated from Grumman.
What about under pans Marshall? Do any of your cars still have it?
Ever see any aftermarket? I'd really like to have all the sound
deadning stuff installed just to see how much quieter it will be. My
2.5 is real quiet.
A couple of my cars have full (both) undershields, my 124 only has the
front shield (now - I destroyed the rear one) and my 190D 2.5 doesn't
have ANY sound shields (the PO was an IDIOT). The factory replacements
are EXPENSIVE, but the early shields and pads are MUCH less expensive
then the later ones (but I don't know why).
