Sound tube heat

Hey guys just finished up installing the AirRaid CAI in the mustang this weekend. I kept the sound tube. While driving around with shorts and barefoot when I got on the throttle I could feel heat coming in on my legs. I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed this and if the sound tube delete fixed it?

At first I just thought it was the Texas heat but I started realizing that it was coming in from the firewall so I think I'm gonna delete the sound tube.

Anytime I get on it I feel heat and I deleted my sound tube. It's nothing to worry about, just makes you a little hotter on an already hot day. But I refuse to use A/C haha

Every Mustang I've had (this is my third one) has done this, including my 2011 with a sound tube delete.

So even with the delete I will still get some heat inside the cabin? It wasn't enough to bother me just enough to notice

You think these are bad, you should have felt how bad this problem was in my 99 camaro. Felt like you had the heat on 24/7.

It seems that a lot of automotive HVAC systems are setup so that unless it's set to recirculate there is a constant venting of heat from the engine compartment. If it really bothers you just turn the vent on, but don't put it on AC. If you just set it to full cold it should bring outside air in.

Mine got ripped out within days of taking delivery. The moment I found out what that useless POS was, I was on a mission. So stupid...

After reading this I just went out side and pulled the sound tube from the wall, I had some rubber squares in my shed so what I did was cut a square maybe 2 x 3. I used some double stick 3M tape on all 4 corners and stuck it to the wall, mounted the tube back in place but before that I just folded the access tubing inside the tube so it sits flush against the wall and still looks stock. The reason I did not remove it was the small 2" extension sticking out side of the cai tube, that would have bugged me more then looking at the sound tube.

Never toss old parts away, just store them you never know when you may need it like selling a car or so on ?

I dunno that it is, but they seem to install them pretty easy. Mines still chilling and I need to sell it.

I thought I read somewhere that the computer cuts off the AC when you go full throttle.
