Default Trans shield ?

I have heard that these shields never expire on the SFI. Is that true? 25234+4294925233+4294863081+4294903957+115&autovie w=sku

What is everyone with a stock floor and firewall in a g body running for a flexplate shield? I tried to install a TCI flexplate shield today and it won't clear the firewall/floor. , should have heard all the words I was yelling.

Not true. All shields are SFI dated and must be either replaced or recertified at 5 yr intervals.

It is true. All SFI rated equipment is supposed to be recertified or replaced. The fact is though, I've never had anybody check. My trans blanket has been in my car for 11 years and nobody has ever looked at it.
