You need to insulate it. That will do more than intercooling it will ever do. Its the hot air that heats up the tube, so you need to get the tube away from the hot air.

Nice idea on the furnace ducting.. I'm assuming that it seals up the rear well with the air filter.. but is the duct bolted to the front? How is the engine flex issue ?? Is the coupler the only part that flexes?? Wat size duct did you use? I like the idea.. it'* small and sleak. may have to copy it.. never had to look for furnace duct.. how wide are they? Diameter so I know roughly how big of a filter I can get.

No offence to anyone.. but I definitely like this idea better then a box as all air is forced right onto the filter

The intake tube has a support bracket that allows it to move a little with the engine. The heat shield has a flexible mount attaching it to the intake tube just at the base of the filter. The shield has a fixed mount to the front of the engine compartment where it draws cool air from behind the head light. The filter is about 6" in diameter while the ducting is 7". It is not sealed at the base of the filter to allow cool air to pass through ( I think this will allow the air around the filter to stay cooler.). You can get this ducting in either black or silver at your local hardware store for about $5. I think mine came in 2' length. I used tin snips to cut it to shape. I am pleased with it as it has very 'finished' look and it functions well.
