Air Intake Tube and Heat Screen heat protection

Hi.
I'm wasn't satisfaction by heat protection K&N CAI 57 series.I've had many idea about this problem,and I found solution(I hope!!!!).
I bought thees item-first picture
second and third pictures-before.
Main idea is block hot air to the filter.
With my pleasure,Manlixer

looks nice, I doubt you'll see any gains from it, but looks nice.

Well protecting the intake tube from heat intrusion will certainly help, I would think. Sure the performance gain may not be easily measurable, but anything to get colder air into the intake can't hurt, right?

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever used a sensor or readings to prove any difference?


I purchased a 5 dollar Ice Warner device deal that has the really long wire with a temp probe on it. Used for warning of ice of course, but I placed the sensor securely inside the air intake track just before the throttle body.

When I made a homemade ram air deal using ducting and the stock air box I could see that the air intake temps were always less than 10 degrees off (warmer) of outside temp. When I reinstalled A/c I did away with the ram air and the stock airbox draws in air from the fender and engine bay.

While driving and moving at constant speed I noticed nothing more than a 15-20 degree difference in intake charge and outside air, where as sitting the air would get way warmer. After sitting the sensor would read over 100 degrees in the summer after engine shutdown and heat soak but would drop quickly once started up.

What I am saying is the stock air box does not to bad of a job even when opened to the engine bay when your moving. I have yet to actually install a true CAI to test with the temp readings but I expect the same as my Ram Air deal, 10 degree or less difference in intake charge and ambient.

If it's a 10 difference that's a 1-2% difference in air volume (depending on ambient temp) - assuming I'm remembering my HS chemistry correctly.

You can use scanner OBD-2 with real time parameters.The one is Air Intake Temperature.I thought about that,but I haven't a scanner.

the K&N is actually advertised as a FiPK, a Fuel Injection Performance Kit, not actually a 'Cold Air' its designed to allow the intake air to travel more fluidly to the throttle body, hence increasing performance.

Yeah, but you also have to consider how much time the air is spending in the intake tube. At 500 RPM air entering the filter is inside the engine in well under a second - not much time to transfer heat from the tube to the intake air ...

For the minimal gain.. I would rather have the nice looking intake being shown in my engine compartment.. rather than aluminum foil wrapped tube. But that's just my personal preference

Right now my K&N is sitting in the back seat on the floor.. itching to get into the engine compartment... Templates have to be made of the heat shield first for a little custom project that's been swimming around in my mind.
