Any Interest in Intake Heat shields?

So I made my own intake heat shield for my track car and it turned out pretty nice! If some of you E36 owners have some serious interest, I'd be down to make a few more and sell them cheap. I know these are hard to come by without spending over $200 on an entire intake from one of the big boys.

Here are a few pics for reference:









As you can see it's a well finished piece. Obviously the ones I make wont have the hole in the side for the oil lines

I'm not sure how much interest there would be. Only people making their own CAI would need one. My question is, why didn't you take it all the way to the fender/rad support?

Yes from behind the headlight, below the bumper and there is a "duct" that comes from the kidney grills.

Haha yeah this reminds me of the person who told me to wrap it with heat reflective tape and that I shouldn't of painted it black.

It's just a heatsheild, it has a rather simple job and if I had made it go all the way to the rad support, it wouldn't make a difference. .01 hp maybe?

Not even my $350 Active intake goes that far. I think the reason is to keep the air flowing through the kidneys like it's designed from the factory.

Plus, when you're actually driving, there is a MASSIVE amount a fresh cold air blowing through the front end right in there.

This is bimmerworlds world challenge intake for e36:

I may just make a couple and pop them up on ebay and kijiji to see how much interested there is.

I know someone in the states sells them for like $70 on there and won't ship to Canada.
