Well, You have a "Hot Air Intake" for starters.
When I built my street engine, I used a cold air intake. To prevent heat soak I did the following:
Unhook the coolant line to the Throttle body. (if you live in cold, snowy climate, dont do this, Florida is OK)
Thermal TB and Intake manifold gaskets (possibly for the scion Tc, need to investigate this further)
Some cheap windshield sunshade (10.00)
Cut the sunshade in a strip. Wrap the intake and use real duct tape (metallized) to seal up and keep in place.
I also used DEI titanium wrap for the exhaust.
When I did this, My intake temps were just 3-4* over ambient.
I have a pic on my computer, but can attach images, only in threads deemed worthy of attachments.
