I am just curious, but did you guys forget you have Eaton superchargers that are hot no matter what temperature the incoming air is? CAI'* for roots blowers are worthless. The only thing you need for it is a bigger intake so it can suck more air, not really cold air. You guys are arguing the wrong battle. N/A cars are affected by temperature entering the engine. A roots */C, nope, get an intercooler and that will be your CAI. Just trying to break this up before you forget that you are trying to do N/A tuning when you have */C cars...... Catchin my drift...
Say what you will but with the CAI my supercharger temperature dropped from 160 F to 125 F. That has got to have some effect.
And read my results.....a 2 tenths improvement in accel time.

The silver reflecto wrap was purchased at the local hardware store. Check the link above for pictures.
It'* 1/4" thick. The trick is to buy some aluminum duct tape so you can add pieces to suit your car.

Good luck. It'* easy.
