Default ?'* about air intake

Yeah so anyway, I went ahead and made my heatshield out of plexi and some angled brackets. I like the way it looks and it'* pretty solid. I used Reflectix on the two sides and bottom of the box inside and out. I've got my intake tube insulated with the reflectix also. I am running a K&N RX-4750. I was showing it off to one of my buddies last night and, when I raised the hood and felt of the intake tube and the plexi box, I noticed there was still quite a bit of heat there. I know inside the engine compartment is not the coolest place to be, but I thought it would all be a little cooler than it is being insulated and all.

So if any of our more experienced than me members could give me some ideas how to cool it down I would be most grateful.

And one other thing how can I tell the temp of the intake air??
Also what is considered ambient air??

Thanks in advance for any and all help you give.

What 2000SilverBullet has done is mount an air duct from under the car into his 'air box'.
If you do a search of his posts I'm sure there are some pics?
