I was at ser.net and reading through SCC's Project 200SX SE-R and one of the statement kinda bugged me. Here it is...

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">After driving Project SE-R, the tubing of PR's air intake is cool to the touch even when everything else under the hood is baking hot.</font>
I don't about you guys, but mine is as hot as the valve cover. Well, not really, but it sure isn't "cool to the touch". I think Naji's CAI Wrap would help. Does anybody's PR CAI actually stay cool or is SCC BS-ing us.

Thats because you are toutching it at idle. Touch it after you come off the highway or some steady driving. That sucker is cool.

It depends where you touch the CAI. The primary (pipe closest to the throttle body) gets hot due to the engine being under it. The secondary stays cooler since it is further away from the engine. Do this: drive your car for a while and then pop the hood and touch the secondary close to the filter and then gradually move up. you will find that the closer you get to the throttle body, the hotter the CAI.

At this weekend track event the techtom registered 135 deg F for intake temperature. Ofcourse that was after 4 session on a road course 20 minutes each. The temp outside was 100 deg F. And that was with a wrapped CAI.
