DEI helps cool off the red hot Slingshot
Avon Lake, Ohio based thermal barrier and sound control specialist Design Engineering is now offering a custom-cut, 11-piece heat management kit for the Polaris Slingshot.
With its compact design and four-cylinder engine, the muffler, catalytic converter and exhaust manifold of the Slingshot all reside in close proximity to one another on the right side of the vehicle. This concentration of heat easily transfers into the passenger area – potentially cooking the floor and driver.
After some R&D work with a range of thermal and acoustic materials, DEI has developed a kit that is said to “address all of the heat and noise issues,” according to DEI Powersports VP of Marketing and Sales Tom Miller.
The kit includes a double walled main heat shield, a single walled floorpan heat shield, nine additional pieces to cover the transmission tunnel, rocker panels and center console. “The end result is a cooler and quieter Slingshot, allowing for longer rides and improved rider comfort.”
Founded in 1995, DEI is a major manufacturer and supplier of high-performance automotive aftermarket products selling worldwide to all sectors of the international powersports market and specializes in the development of thermal and acoustic performance products.
