Default intake insulation.

Hey everyone, its getting warm again, well at least in Chicago. Who's going to insulate their intake. I did mine today with Frost King from Home Depot. I noticed no difference but at least i know its cooler.

Default insulation couldn't hurt...

Yeah! Now, if it'll just get warm enough to switch over to summer forumlation gasoline...

I'm looking forward to also removing my right hand side "I got's nuthin' for a fog light" cover, slapping on some gutter guard to keep the birds out of the homebrew CAI, and getting a little pressurized cold air into that lovely insultated tube

I have some Frost King on my PDM intake. I don't know how much it helps, but I'm thinking about wrapping it with a second layer.

Well, I also put some frost king stuff on my stock air box. I don't think it helped me any, just made my dealer laugh at me

I ended up ripping it all off when I changed from the stock box to a cone filter. I've heard that the air should be going through fast enough when the car isn't at idle so that insulating isn't that helpful.
