Yes a heatshild will definitely prevent HP loss from the heat. I think someone mentioned for every 10 degrees its 1 or 2 hp(?) So yes it definitely helps, a MUST Have.....If you look at one youll see why. Mine gets so hot you cant even touch it so I know it makes a diff

When you are moving, hot air isnt that big of a deal since it all flows out under the car. A heatshield also blocks the turbulent airflow from the fan under the hood....yes it makes a diff
