MINI Turbo Oil Line Heat Shield! This is the new stock heat shield that comes on all new model MINI Cooper S turbo motors. It clips over the turbo oil line and has an extra heat wrap to help protect the o-ring from cooking it self. Early (2007) cars did not come with this shield at all. Some where in 2009 they add the shield to the top, around 2012 they added the extra flap Add this shield to your car to help combat the heat and make your stock parts last longer!
As of Oct 1st (2013) MINI raised the price on this item. Sadly we need to follow suit also as it was not a modest change.

I bought this shield with the Detroit Tuned oil feed line kit. The line kit from Detroit Tuned was excellent, this shield was a genuine MINI part with the latest heat "flap" to further shield the oil line. The part fit OK but was hard to get a "sano" looking install due to tight clearances. Perhaps if I had the turbo out I could have made it look better. I'm sure it will work OK but not pleased with the aesthetics....

This was by far the easiest mod/upgrade ever!
Took longer to open the box than to install the shield on the turbo oil line.
