x2. Where you have it right now, it'* exposed to a ton of radiant heat from the crossover pipe. If it gets hot enough, it'* going to melt the insulation and then you're SOL...
BTW, I like the intake, the welds look very even, good quality. But these guys are right, you're still sucking in hot air, and these motors are very sensitive to intake heat.
Use card board to mock up a box that shields it from the engine bay as completely as possible, then use that as a template to cut your shield from plexi, or some sort of insulating material. I would also consider wrapping the pipe in insulating material to keep the radiant heat from the crossover out.
