Yeah, because you haven't understood how intake air temperature affects on engine operation.I wouldn't waste my time with that mod, but thats just me. To each his own.

heck no! lolBut aluminum dissipates heat from around the air intake????? not enough?
Thanks a lot,it sure does make a lotta sense to me.So it looks like a box is the go but I'm still concerned about the higher temps that will occour when Ideling and the large fluctuations in temps.Does anyone have any input on this? Is Hydrolock the only concern with a cold air intake?heck no! lol
remeber, the air under your hood is really hot, and it's moving really fast all around under your hood and it'll blow right past that lil shield, plus the intake tube is really pulling the air to it when you're gassing it really hard!
Yes, I totally understand exactly what you are saying and your right. The reason I suggest not doing it is because from what I see in his sig, its for an automactic D-Series. Your better off saving that money on a setup that will net you bigger gains. You won't notice any difference in that kind of car.Yeah, because you haven't understood how intake air temperature affects on engine operation.
IMO this is the best way to do it, I would've done this too if my car had a ram pipe and pod filter.. Also Endyn, and many many successful tuners do it.
It combines the best of SRI and CAI, you get short, properly tuned ram pipe to get high power, and you can supply it with coldest possible air.
Trying to make it "airproof" and add some ram-air intake into front of car would be a great idea too.
