Default Aftermarket headers help with battery heat shield

Hello world

I need help I have been searching on google but can’t seem to find the help I search for.

I picked up some Skunk2’s headers and I read that the
black OEM heat shield that protects the battery / fuse box area from the heat coming off the engine.
Wont fit back on after installing the headers what’s the best route to go to protect ac lines fuse box and battery.
Would The J’s racing heat shield from Evasive work well for my problem Or is their any vendors on forums like alloy still produce parts for protecting stock battery location and fuse box please post link or pm
thank you in advance for any help that anyone can provide.

thank you again
seems as though the threads points to having them removed to physically install however makes no mention of them having to be removed permanently.



also i purchased a J's racing shield and returned it because the bolt holes did not line up and the bends were wrong

Dang your bay is too clean
Can you get a top view of the factory battery heatshield and headers?
I wanna see clearance if you don’t mind
and you also have the alloy battery heat cover
also thanks for letting me know on the js racing saving me money

the guy in the post said “Cannot reinstall “
thats the only post I came across noting that
I don’t want to work double so I been stuck there trying to find help on google but couldn’t
that’s the only thing holding me back from the work
I’ll give it a attempt tomorrow hope all is well I’ll post photo of my dirty stock engine bay once completed if completed
Might you say no issue then it’s a go lol
thank you again

I'd do a header wrap as probably the cheapest option. I have a PLM header, which I'm told is a cheaper knockoff of a J's Racing and it fits fine.

Thanks I was considering Using header wrap but was reading that can cause cracks on the welding of the headers so if the oem heat shield works then I’ll be ok
I also have a vents on my hood which might help with the heat
