thx in advance, Dave J
I use shim stock, which is thin sheet metal. You can block both sides or just one side. I would do both sides (just to make sure).
Simply slide a sheet metal cover over the intake manifold port where the exhaust gas enters on both sides. Then, no manifold shield is necessary.
