Well its drawing in hot air, so wrapping it probably won't help you. I realize its a cai, but its still very possible to draw in hot air (esp. in Florida).

Well, since the air is constantly moving over the surface I can't see it heating up very much at all. I think header wrap on an intake would be about as useless as having a intercooled N/A set-up.
