 The heat shield is an internal part that fits between the turbine
 housing and the bearing housing. Its purpose is to reduce bearing
 temperature. Applying a thermal barrier to the shield makes it much more
 effective. It also leads to cooler air charge temperatures.

Eric,

The heat shield is an internal part that fits between the turbine
housing and the bearing housing. Its purpose is to reduce bearing
temperature. Applying a thermal barrier to the shield makes it much more
effective. It also leads to cooler air charge temperatures.
