haha, yeah I saw this in 2Wheeltuner. The idea makes sense. People do all kinds of stuff to keep engine heat away from air filters on cars. Who knows if it's enough to actually make a difference.

"Like the difference between a 600 and 1000" , 7 RWHP. Yeah, that 300.00 KN cold air intake I put on my Taco was good for 3-5 HP. I'll wrap your box in Dynamat for 75.00.

haha, you could grap a couple more hp just from running a higher octane in the same sense and theres a pump that has 100 right down the road!! I see what there doing, but its shady in the same sense you have to ship your airbox out to them

I'll do you one better- GOLD FOIL!!!!!! Cost is going up though.

Actually I'd really like to see temperature readings at both ends of the box on both 'modded' and un-modded.
I'm fairly certain that the airbox and stacks were made of the materials they are not only to keep the weight down, but to minimize the heat transfer.

That being said, the reflecting heat idea is not a bad one, but to really do it right, you'd be better off using something layered like an exhaust heat shield, polish it up and you have some decent reflective proerties too- and Blingin!!!

if there was a way where you could freeze your air box without the problem of condensation. it would work. dont eat before you ride gain some speed lol

I did something similar myself, very easy and dirt cheap. After removing the large rubber shroud, I decided I wanted to keep the airbox as cool as possible, so I obtained a roll of aluminium reflective tape from my local hardware store, and proceeded to cover the underside of the airbox. No idea if it makes a measurable difference, but the concept is sound, and the shroud is there for a reason.

Cheers,
Brian

What if I place dry ice in my shrouds? Would it help keep my air cool?
