Question Heat shield for intake?

Several months ago I saw that someone had info on making a heat shield that would help insulate a short ram from hot air in the engine compartment. I can't seem to find the info on it. Does anyone have the link or know who posted it?

Thanks

wrap some pink house insulation with the shiney side out around it ;)

El ghetto mod, but should do the trick.

edit: I will not be held liable for anything you try on your vehicle.

The better idea I had was to make a coil of copper tubing thru the intake pipe and run the cold side of the AC freon line thru the intake.

Are we talking about a heat shield to protect the air already taken in (intake tube) or the air about to be taken in (air filter)?

Would that actually work you think? Seems like if you could get the tubing into the intake it might actually make a difference. First time ive ever heard this idea before but hey it may work great.

The air that goes in the filter. Someone had dimensions to make an air dam that would shield the filter from the rest of the engine compartment.

check out ebay motors. i know alot of people hate ebay on here but its alright as long as you know what to look for. i bought a 20 dollar heat shield that goes around the cone filter. it works out pretty good. ive had it for 6 months plus and no problems with it.

There was a company that made a carbon fiber heatshield box thingy for short rams, but I think they went out of business... I was actually looking for one right before it happened... sent some e-mails to them and never got a reply.

They did this on a prototype Lightning several years ago. Yes it works, but it would be cheaper to buy a JRSC by the time you had it all worked out.

Sounds like I'm the only one that remembers the post. I guess I'll just have to make one on my own.
