That has been one of the things that drive folks a bit buggy..but oh well..gotta have them..
If you have ever seen the results of a clutch explosion then you would want all the armor plate you can get..But then I digress..
ask your tech guys if they will accept a shield made of 1/4" steel formed around the bell housing..it is a pain to roll and form but it will work..of course by the time you buy the steel and get it done the one from lakewood will seem cheap at twice the price..
I should say the a steel scatter shield bell housing will out last several cars so it is not all that bad an investment..
Just my thoughts..
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
