Default Dynamat + CAI = Good idea?

I want to bring down the buzziness of my CAI. I was thinking about buying a relatively small peice of dynamat and covering the CAI up, thereby quieting the beast down.

Bad Idea? Good Idea?

They didn't talk very much about Dynamat in that thread, but thanks.

I have a ghetto CAI, an AEM for a wrx that has been cut to fit in my GC. It's extremely loud at WOT and when I get an exhaust, I'd like to dumb down the noise from the CAI a little.

you're right but they did mention it. I think it would look a lot cleaner than foam in your fender and it seems it would help out but im not sure how much it would quite it down

What kind of CAI is it im wondering about one for an older 2.5?

it's just a 2 3/8" bent peice of aluminum piping with an AEM filter on the end. Basically a short ram.

I've noticed a drop in intake temps with a snap-on obd scan tool when I wrapped the intake in header wrap. it doesn't make any noises at all.
