Default Intake Heat Shield/Cone filters/WeaponR

Hi all,

I have a 1999 RS with a WeaponR Cold Air Intake... However, I find that my intake is taking alot of the hot air coming from my engine, thus costing me some power...

Does anyone have a picture of a heat shield setup (preferably with a WeaponR intake), or maybe some ideas on how opening up the hood vents, putting a small scoop on the hood vents (I saw that once, looks cool), etc., etc, etc...

Any suggestion on how to improve my own setup...

If you have time to list materials neede and such, bonus ! I know people don't like to share their custom setups, trying to be unique, but trust me, I'm not good enough to copy anything semi-professional looking... I just want some ideas is all...

I tried posting similar question, but with limited help...

Thanks in advance all...

My prototype (pictured) is 1/8 aluminum, with door seal foam on the top. Bolt locations are all stock, and require no new hardware (if you kept yours from the airbox)....

Yes you can use lexan or plexiglass, make sure its thick though.

My next one will from carbon fiber........

On the basis of fysics the main purpose of these heat shields should be to direct the air from the fender, not from the engine components. So it's not that important to make the isolator well isolating, but a thight contact to the side of thfender where the air should be taken. I'm planning about doing a CAI my self and if I decide to use cone system the isolator will resemble something like North Ursalia does.
Well keep the purpose in mind when making your on. Cut some sheet metal (for hard core, I wouldn't do ) of the inside of the side fender to allow it suck air more easily and make the housing cone shaped to prevent turbulance in it.
You have the intake silencer removed, right?
