No you cant run the heat shield as its attatched to the factory muffler. I have one on my 04 and dont have any probs with heat, it does get warmer than the other side but nothing to worry about. If you wanted I suppose you could make a heat shield out of some aluminum and mount it where the pipe mounts to the frame
or if it is getting to hot for you, you could clean the underside of the plastic and put insulation there
