I decided to go with ABS plastic insted of aluminum since it's easier to cut...

you should add some rubber to seal the heat shield against the hood!

You should go to BMW and order some of those rubber moldings in the front of the car...Looks like it will finish the look and make a tight seal...I am referring to the rubber molding near the kidney grills...It has an edge where the moldings would fit perfect!!! Just a suggestion

I had a K&N Kit a few years ago for a Durango that did that. Had a heat shield with a rubber seal against the hood. No clue how it well it worked but it looked good at least (And did make a damn nice sound).

That looks damn good. You plan on being another forum member selling a product? This is something I would definitely want.

Looks much better, but I think moldings like the BMW ones near the kidneys would be 10X better for sure...It will long like the ones that AEM sells or even a intake I saw on Ford Mustang Cobra...it had a thick piece of molding at the top and gave it a almost perfect seal!!! Try it...I think that one strip will from the top of the engine bay near the kidneys will cover your heat shield with a little left that you would need to cut off!!!
