Only heat shimmer I have ever seen has been on a jet aircraft.  On a P-51, where would the shimmer appear from and what direction would It go?  Can you show a picture of what you are describing?

With all of those effects in the [smoke system] I would surely

Expect to see something happen when hitting hitting the

I (eye) key.  Does the manual have any other info on the 

smoke/heat shimmer?

A2A is using an undocumented set of gauge commands to fully control the [smokesystem] section. 
You might want to add your shimmering effects as a light in the [Lights] section instead.

I agree with spokes2112.  It will be a matter of learning how to turn on your [smokesystem].
