Templar26 So, this is a little embarrassing to ask. I just did the snorkel delete on my car with a friend helping, and while removing one of those plastic plug/seal things, it popped out and dropped into the engine compartment. I couldn't see where it was or get to it or get under the car to look.

For all I know, it dropped to the bottom and then fell out when I started to drive (didn't hear anything, didn't seem to be a problem). Should I worry about it?

Here's my question/idea.

This summer in the TwinCities is going to be one continuous stop & go construction mess. Does anyone know of a product that could be taped or sprayed around the outside of the air box that would reflect some heat back into the engine compartment, to reduce the heat-soak somewhat. Maybe even have a thin layer of insulation under the reflective surface. I was looking in the furnace and sheet metal section of the local ACE hardware store, but did not see anything.
I'm in the same boat, brother. What I'm going to do is grab another air box and do the New Mission Mod. Thanks for posting tho. I'm considering wrapping the box anyways. We do get some nasty heat in the summer.

You can find Thermo-Tec adhesive backed heat shield on amazon.com. I used it to insulate the cowl on my Focus S. It has a very thin layer of insulation with an aluminized layer on top.

Ti/12 Thanks for the web link! I will check it out and give it a try. It will probably make a small difference in the heat-soak. But I do a LOT of city street, stop and go driving, and every little bit helps.

dyn085 Don't even worry about it with that intake, it's intended use is for a closed intake using the OEM intake tract. Doing it wouldn't hurt your setup, but I highly doubt it would help.

Ox-y-GenIII So if I don't do the ST snorkel kit, what's the benefit of removing the snorkel? Does it block airflow to the radiator or something? I already have an fswerks cool flo intake.
