I'm interested in putting some extra exhaust heat shielding in a few spots but it's not really facilitated by the ruleset AFAIK.

Anyone else run into this? What's the stance?

As long as you are not relocating any part of the floor of the car and if the shielding doesn't create a "flat bottom" effect, you should be fine. The idea is a shield between the underbody and the heat rejecting component, but nothing between the ground and the heat rejecting component.

Dang, you're onto me! I was hoping to hang an undertray off the exhaust ;)

Nah, was looking to install something to shield the transmission/diff/and respective cooler lines. The TR6060 found in the 2010+ Camaro has an internal pump that runs to the radiator much like most conventional automatics. The diff doesn't got a ton of flow either.
