Keep in mind, no matter what, the iat sensor is in the maf in the engine bay, and the engine bay is like a pressure cooker. Even with my layers on top of layers, the only way the temps stay down is by keeping air moving through the intake. Don't get me wrong though, the wrap is definitely worth doing, especially for the price. For 30ish bucks and a little effort, you're buying your self some valuable time in the staging lanes. But there is a reason why most people take the inverse approach to solving this problem. Header wrap, hood vents, etc to keep heat out of the engine bay in the first place. I think I will try that next and I will let you guys know if it helps or not.:nerd:

...and had a but left over so wrapped as many heat sources near the intake as possible... Trans fluid lines...

One thing the honda guys do is use washers on the hood to tilt the hood so air moves out of the bay over the windshield.

idk how thatll look on a Avy or Camry tho..

Oh, it looks bad. On every car... 😁


Vents would probably work best, but then there's rain and snow. How's no one ever tackled that before? Closest thing i could find online is for the frs. They have trays that can go underneath to redirect the water.
