the heat shield seems to work well. It is a '69- i run it hard without both of the dual boosters and it brakes well so i guess it is fine. I have the fancy, centerline, wilwood front brake set-up (6/lb per wheel less unsprung weight!) which offers excellent stopping power. If you want to have the boosters (a must for the originality police) then it may be a tough fit. I have had a '69 with the 2 boosters and the current one without any. I notice no difference between pedal feel and stopping power from either set up. With brakes, it seems to me, it is best to have fewer points of failure...

Current: 69 GTV, 2019 Stelvio, 95 Porsche 968 cab
Past 74 GTV, 69 GTV, 74 Spider
