    Hmm. That was what I originally warned about.

    Have you had the bodywork done yet? If not, speak to the insurance and explain the situation. The repair should be covered under the same claim. You need to get a proper assessment done of that area of the engine to be sure of all the damage.

    Regarding the heat shield, that might not be anything. They crack quite easily. Getting a replacement return may be the problem if you have to get one from Nissan. That was a 'never ordered before' part when I tried to get one for the first S15. May be easier to take the original to somewhere that can make them up. Did this last time. However, I was lucky that a race team was in the unit next to the one doing the repairs...

    That should definetly go under the same insurance claim.

    But who knows what insurance companies think sometimes.
    I hope they don't give you a hard time.

    I thought you would have used up all your bad luck by now
