Does heatwrapping the CAI benefit the N/A? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat

As far as gains, they will minimal if any at all. The air normally moves to quickly thru the tube to be affected by engine temps. But it WON'T hurt anything. And if you live in extreme climate zones (Texas for example) you may see a difference, or drive your car in stop and go traffic A LOT.

But as I said it wont hurt anythin and in some cases it looks better. I'm wrapping my FWI just because it came with it-lol.

Now getting your air filter AWAY from engine temps is a good thing

Thanks. I found it on ebay for pretty cheap. Willwren suggested that header wrap sealer be sprayed on it so it will seal better and won't fray over time.
