Default Heat Shieldfor the CAI

So, I finally got around to building my heat shield. I want to thank Pat (1993_SLE) and Bill (Willren) for the ideas I stol...borrowed to build this:

The shield was built right around the filter and the pipe runs into it. The IAT recepticle runs through the shield and the sensor plugs in on the outside. I used lexan plastic and reflectix heat reflecting material.





The best part is that the shield acts as a solid support for the whole box.

Looks good...

Is that a "spare" clamp laying on the rad support?

Yeah. I didn't remember if I had taken a clamp off the throttle body, so I brought an extra just in case.

I'm curious. Did the heat shield and insulation make the intake any quieter? Or no difference.
