Yes another CAI thread? Please look..

Is there something I can cover my CAI to make it soak up less heat.. Or paint it black? Or anything it gets so hot you can barely touch it.. Anyone have ideas?

Summit Racing and Jegs have insulated wrap for just this thing. Black paint ain't the answer.

Yep. Cold air intakes are designed to be just that...cold air. That's why they are made to insulate stock. Why aftermarket companies think its appropriate to sell metal intakes, I'll never know. I'd switch to a new intake, or use the stock tube with aftermarket filter. Metal tube is your problem

i'd leave it be...you're air going through that tube even at idle won't stay in there long enough to decompress the air molecules to the point it hurts your performance. if you're truely worried about it then buy a $10 roll of header wrap and get to work, but it's not really going to matter unless you're doing pass after pass on a track and needing to recool the intake before each run. if you're ever at that point then you'll find much better ways of doing that
