Starter heat shields

How important are the heat shields for the starter? I plan on putting them on this weekend, but is a little driving in the meantime ok? Thanks!

They aren't that important. They help over a long period of time, but I've had mine off for years and it starts fine. don't worry about them. I end up ripping one each time im under the truck.

Depends on the exhaust layout, and how close they get. My buddy had a Chevelle that went through starter solenoids every few months until I finally convinced him to put a heat shield on it, never had another one go bad after that

Personally, it's cheap insurance and if you've already got it on there, I'd just leave it.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
