    If it is'nt rattling or rotted I'd leave it be IMHO. Cats get real hot as you know and paint on the underside can burn aswell..Just my .02..

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    I left mine in on both cars, even without the cats.
    Actually on my wifes car, being a 6 speed, the hydraulic clutch line runs behind the heat shield on the driver side to isolate it from heat.
    Good idea to keep it that way as heat will play havic with hydraulic fluid and clutch action.

    I would just leave them alone, no reason to remove them.

    I assume you are talking to the thread starter, but there are other reasons to remove them instead of weight savings. You don't save any weight by removing them either like you mentioned.
