Lava Starter Shield is made using the Heatshield Products patented and proven crushed volcanic rock fiber to protect your Stang's starter. This is an ideal thermal barrier when there is less than 1 inch of airspace between your starter and headers, but also works great when there is more airspace. Lava Starter Heat Shield does not conduct electricity, unlike nearly all competitive thermal barriers. That means you do not have to worry about an electrical short occurring with exposed starter terminals coming in to contact with the shield.
Protecting the starter motor and solenoid from excessive heat will extend the life of these products, improve starter-cranking performance when hot and reduce electrical amp draw while starting under hot conditions. Lava Starter Shield protects the starter from constant temperatures as high as 1,200 degrees F and short-term temps as high as 2,000 degrees F.
This heat shield for your 5.0 H.O. OE style starter is easy to install and typically does not require starter removal. Using heat-resistant and durable hook-and-loop fasteners, Lava Starter Shield is wrapped securely around the starter and will not come off when subjected to engine and driving vibrations. This allows for easy removal for engine servicing. Made in the USA, Lava Starter Shield is the best way to protect the starter motor and solenoid from damaging heat, preventing costly and inconvenient starter failures from ruining your day. It also has a cool carbon-fiber appearance.
