Edited the photos post with direct links
the old links were from my photos in the gallery, I figured that would work. Still a rookie here.

Where the old scoop was mounted, you can see the new tube position underneath
The tube going to the 5-inch square scoop which is mounted just to the left of the fan assembly
And here's the piece to deflect the air off to the right towards the filter

Datalog IAT's and then post back.
Last night I averaged 90°F while idiling. Took about 1 minute for IAT's to drop near ambient once moving, but still 10°F over ambient. Outside temp last night here was around 30.

|Jaketet||You're right, and I know that the drop in panel filter is considered to be the best intake mod for the SVT, but I learned about that after I bought and installed my short ram, so, before taking it out and putting the stock back in and wasting my money, I'm seeing if I can do anything to prevent this horrible heatsoak that I hear about. The thing is, so far I have ever experienced any signs of heatsoak at all, I think some people are just slightly paranoid about it.|

|iminhell||Sounds like the hard way to not improve upon the stock airbox ...|

Custom Intake mod
I'll try to post pictures soon.
Similar to the "fog light ram air" thread I found, except I still have my fog lights
I wanted to help negate potential heat soak with my K&N short ram so I modified the old air scoop that is normally up front above the grille. I moved the tube down to behind the lower grille. I found 5-inch square tube for more volume. Because the other end of the tube is not directly below the new cone filter, I riveted a piece of sheet metal to the intake heat shield to direct the air over to around the filter.
Tests with a fan showed that there was some serious airflow circulating around the filter.
Not looking for a "ram air" effect from this, I knew it wouldn't actually create any pressure, but more fresh air should help lower AITs a bit.
