I wouldn't do it, unless you feel like replacing your rubber hoses all the time because they heat up and crack from all the heat

taking off the heatshild is the biggest pain in the neck, it looks simple take off the bolts and pull it out, but once u get the bolts off, then ur left with no clearence to pull it out, me and carnegee took mine off, it took forever, we got so pissed we gave up on pullin it out, wqe took tin snipps and cut that ish out

Taking the heat sheild off the stock exhaust manifold will only drasically raise underhood temp. The extra heat would also drain hp and torque from your engine, and shorten the life of everything under the hood. It's not a good idea. Headers don't have or need a heat sheild because they're ceramic coated, which retains the heat from the exhaust and keeps underhood temps to a minimum.
