Question Hot air intake?

So I've had my simple J-tube intake for a while now with the filter in the engine compartment where the air box first was but have no plans for a cold air extension since I'm off-road all the time and don't want to worry about mud or deep puddles. I'm curious if some type of heat sheild would be beneficial, or I was also thinking of moving one step up in the temp range for my NGKs. Anyone think one will work better than the other??? Thanks.

A heat shield help get colder air, but if you are "off road all the time" its likely that by drawing air from the fender that you will get more dirt to travel to your filter. Be a stud and cut a hole in the fender and run a tube up to the top of your windshield for a snorkle!

Why do you want to change your heat range? Have you pulled the plugs and evaluated their condition? If they look "used" then you don't need to change them.

Here is a page that talks about the apperance of the spark plugs and what the causes and solutions are:

It would be cool to see someone make a snorkel CAI like they use in Jeeps someimtes. Or even a Ram-Air intake through a hoodscoop.

The cold air doesn't keep your engine colder, it makes for a denser charge. A heat shield will help, go for it.

Yes, I know cool air provides for better combustion(denser air = more powerful explosion), not keeping the engine cool. That's a damn cool idea with the snorkel, though. I know of an offroad shop locally that hooks up the Jeep kits all the time so they will have all the plumbing I'll need. Any ideas for the hood scoop-ram intake would be appreciated since I could do that myself with a hole put where that scoop is- FINALLY! Only concern is keeping the elements out of my combustion chambers while driving....
