    I noticed my carbon diffuser is getting some discoloration from the exhaust sitting right above it. The top side, bumper cover has 2 metal plates that I assume prevent damage from the hot exhaust on the bumper cover, wondering if they made a similar plates to protect the diffuser. I've searched and short of making a pair of customer CF plates for it I have not found anything. Anyone happen to see/know of a product for this?

    Thanks

    There is aluminum faced insulation materials. I would think lining the back of your diffuser with that would suffice.

    Hi also from NJ and a Scud .. I redid all the engine compartment carbon fiber do to heat discoloration and I did not know that it also may affect the exterior CF ..

    Life got in the way so the pieces are still not in car ..been looking for something to cover the underside of the panels above headers since that is where most of the discoloration was ..

    Maybe whatever people suggest can be used for my needs as well .. mine would be a higher temp though

    What part of nj are you from ?

    I’ve never heard or seen this on the exterior diffuser, but I would think another remedy to prevent this from happening again to a new diffuser would be to install longer exhaust tips e.g. the ones from kline innovations.

    Yea I have those already, they protect the inside of the CF part. I am specifically looking for a shield/plate that goes on the outside under the exhaust tip.

    My bay looks perfect, its just the lower CF diffuser under the exhaust tips I worry about.

    I was in the East Rutherford area until this past fall, I moved to upper Bergen. I had made a post a few years back about a local white scud as well. That you?


    I think I am just going to have some TI or CF finishers made to place under the tips at this point. I cant seem to find anything, I vaguely remember seeing a set on a Challenge car during an event in the past, wondering if they where just custom parts.

    Thanks for the help guys, the search will continue until I either make or find a set.
