I would put the shield on. Sucking hot air is bad. If it is a short ram by the stock lacation, the rad fans will blow hot air onto it and the headers are just below and back.

But if they say they tested it. :dunno:
the heat shield doesnt prevent sucking hot air. It just replaces the stock heat shield that covers the driver side manifold.
