Heat Shielding

I need to put some heat shielding between the tub and catalytic converter to cut down on heat in the summer. Found this new flexible ceramic heat shielding product, and wondered if anyone has given it a try.

Failing that, what's the best heat shielding solution between the tub & catalytic converter?

Originally they had a metal heat shield in that area mine is still installed. I did do some sound/heat shield in the tub to cut the summer heat. It will not hurt and they do make the stuff with adhesive backing to make the install easier. I used Dynamat link to Summit supplied for you.

try running a thinner oil like 5-30 instead of 10-40 and do not add anything to it such as lucas. The thinner the oil run in a 4.0 the quieter the top end will be. Its not like other engines, people add thickeners like lucas to help and it just makes it louder. The key is to thin the oil enough to get to the top end faster.
