Default Intake Insulation

I was just curious how many people actually insulated their intake. Is this something that acually helps a lot? Also wouldn't that seem like something that could start a fire since the engine is so hot?

What do you mean by insulating? Kinda odd, maybe I dunno about it.

Did you mean "sectioning" the intake from engine bay? Quite a few people do that with the airboxes/OEM or CAI that go in the fender wells.

I am talking about the picture on the ganzflow site. It has can coolers wrapped around the intake.

Go to your local Home Depot/Lowes and look in the plumbing section for reflective foam pipe wrap. Its only a couple of bucks and has an aluminum foil side/foam center/adhesive back and you can wrap just about anything in it.

The picture on Ganz's site is my car. The CAI is insulated with drink "koozies". Yes, I think it helps alot to reduce the intake air temperature.
