DEI’s new Oil Filter Heat Shield can be used to keep oil at its best operating temperature; especially important for vehicles with high performance engines. With most vehicles the oil filter is typically located between the oil pan and engine, and can be near hot exhaust headers. Without protection, radiant heat can increase oil temperature and potentially cause heat soak. Most oil is designed to work optimally between 180°F to 210°F. DEI’s Oil Filter Shield effectively blocks radiant heat that can change the oils viscosity or potentially cause a thermal breakdown that will make the oil additives degrade, dissipate, and wear out quickly.

As a long time specialist in heat control for all forms of motorsports and powersports, DEI made the Oil Filter Heat Shield universal in size so they can be trimmed to fit and used for any size oil filter. Sold as a convenient three pack, they are available in two sizes: 3.5” – 4.5” x 4” (part #010740) or 2.5” – 3.5” x 3” (part #010741) wherever DEI thermal products are sold.
