question is yours supercharged but i would imagine that it works kid of like that pink panther stuff you use to insulate a house good job man

i am not SC'd i have the exact same engine you do....

and yes all that insualtion really keeps out the heat
so did you have to cun or modify any thing at all like

the tube or the throttle body

i dont think that u should have to modifiy the throttle body
when you get pipe you will need to cut it a little shorter so it fits, that is all you need to do...and make sure you get a silicon coupler not a cheap rubber one

Lucas, if your engine moves like mine does in that video I posted, you have a broken motor or trans mount. Probably the front trans mount. You need to figure out which one and fix it ASAP.
