Key Benefits of a SFI Approved 4L80E Transmission Shield

  • A properly installed 4.1 SFI transmission shield will provide greatly increased safety
    for driver, crew members, track workers, vehicle and spectators.
  • SFI spec approved, required by many sanctioning bodies, in numerous classes, in
    order to pass technical inspection before being allowed to compete.
  • They look great and allow the transmission to run much cooler than the transmission
    blanket type safety device, because our shields allow for air circulation around the
    entire transmission. This type shield does not become near as dirty as a blanket type shield and it is far easier to clean.
