Yeah it probably gets quite hot. It might be a sensible idea to retain the shielding if possible as I would hate to start a fire in long grass (unless the sump guard provides adequate insulation/heat separation). We've all heard those nasty spinifex anecdotes .

SH's are all EJ engines - turbo is up around the driver's side rocker cover.

Can't see the headers and up-pipe being any different.

Keep the heat shielding (or replace it with exhaust wrap) - unless you want high under-bonnet temperatures, a hot firewall, and risks with heat around your brake master reservoir.

I watched about half of it. As he said, people don’t care so for me relevancy suffers. I noticed though that there were still cars wasting power through spinning wheels while the opposing wheel lazily did nothing. Something we’ve all seen before.

You definitely don't want to remove the heat shielding off that.

from that russian video that subaru outback silver one was best as they say had best tires most agressive and highest maybe , wonder does it had VDC or non VDC model. but it was better then audis in most things there. again tires made diff , good snow tires in snow will do better then mud or AT tires for sure. still was fun .

mine VDC test . snow 2 wheels in air . VDC Off vs On. and yes you can pass that with momentum maybe but maybe you will brake something as it was deep there.

and another from russia. different subarus new subaru XV vs foresters vs 4wd cars vs others. Oka 4wd with 2 engines.
XV showing x mode capabilitys.
