A member went to a race where there a few Boss's. He noticed that all of them had their intakes wrapped in heat blocking material. I figured they must know something.

It's been super hot in San Diego lately and each summer will get a little worse. I've already cut the hood blanket away from the vents to allow more heat to escape.

I got the wrap and tape from Pace Performance HP Heatshield mat and Themaflect reflective tape. They are suppose to block 90% of radiant heat up to 1,100 degrees.

I first wrapped the C&L air box in the HS mat.



Adhesive side of mat:



After.



I then used the tape to try and seal up the box a little.



I then used the tape and wrapped the intake tube. Here is the final product. I know it's ugly and won't win any car shows, but hopefully it will help with heat soak and reducing IAT's. I still need to test it.





Next, I'm going to try and seal the filter off more with some kind of shield on the open side.

This is badass. Cheap and probably very effective. I live in Dallas, we were over 100 for the most part of the summer, I like this idea Tks for sharing
