Corvette EGR Pipe Heat ShieldAVON LAKE, OHIO (APRIL 24, 2015) – Insulating Corvette EGR valve pipes not only helps reduce heat radiating from the pipe, but also helps to keep exhaust gas temperatures higher as it is being reintroduced into the intake. Mixing with the intake air helps lower combustion temperatures for a cooler more complete fuel burn for maximum HP.

Design Engineering, leading specialists in performance thermal products, now offers a Corvette EGR Pipe Heat Shield for 1985 – ’91 models that makes installation a simple and straightforward task. Designed with an innovative sewn-in hook & loop edge, the shield easily wraps around the EGR pipe for a secure fit.  Simply trim off any excess material for a quick replacement without removal of the EGR valve or pipe...

Muffler Shield KitAVON LAKE, OHIO (MARCH 12, 2015) – Design Engineering’s new lightweight Ultra Sheath MA™ reflects direct and radiant heat that can cause damage to under-hood components, burn ignition wires and wiring, or damage brake and fuel lines. Designed as an upgrade to aluminum or foil sleeving, Ultra Sheath MA is constructed from a process that impregnates molten aluminum to the core fabric giving it higher heat reflective properties. This process provides a higher sustained heat capability; up to 1100°F for direct heat.



Muffler Shield KitAVON LAKE, OHIO (FEBRUARY 19, 2015) – Hot rod and muscle car mufflers can transfer a tremendous amount of heat into the cabin which can make for an uncomfortable ride. DEI’s New Muffler Shield Kit, developed with the same race proven technology as DEI’s popular Floor and Tunnel Shield II™ product, is constructed of 10 mil dimpled aluminum with a 1/8” needle glass insulator.  The result is a clean-looking shield that greatly reduces radiant heat resulting in a cooler cabin interior and overall component protection from the effects of extreme heat.
