Would heat wrap reduce the intake temp even more? :confused Just a thought...
the cost of heat wrap would probably buy enough materials to make your own heal shield.
some fiberglassing or sheet metaling..
and i have never seen any, i mean ANY racing teams heat wrap the intake piping to reduce the heat. rather then that, they try more OPENING and straight pipings for better air flow and such.

no, it would, but it probably won't do much at all.

mad-ass

i got my k&n filter in
got it for $33, really good for me since i saw it at pepboys for 60 and ^
only problem i had was that the filters opening was 2.5 and my intake was 3.0inches so i just bought a hose reducer and used that...

it really depends on you. like what color theme do you sorta like and think would look good with you car? i would do red just beacuse that stands out more. but its an intake, no one will really see it

Yes, I've painted it black. Looks pretty HOT :devil2: I decided on black because my car was already black and I love black, so more black is better.





Intake is probably the best look part in the engine bay. Maybe the distributor too, since that was new...

ahaha, looks good so far!

I am glad that people are using my DIY, but I say this agian. this is more of a basic intro of how to spray paint.

you should paint your hood before it turns into a rust sheet

lol the hood has been painted. that was the first thing i did when i got the car. but there are so many runs and stuff on it, i don't really care that much anymore. i might fix it up again after winter passes. getting too cold the paint. or i might just buy a new hood or something.

wait... does AEM heat treat their intakes or have a heat resistant coating? Because that's 2 very different things.

And spray paint will not repel heat any significant amount, sorry. If it did, Jethot coating would go out of business. The 'heat resistant' part of that paint is it's resistance to chipping when exposed to high heat. Regular spray paint will be just fine on an intake, it doesn't get nearly hot enough to ruin it (i've used krylon on valve covers before and those get much hotter).
AEM has heat resistant coating.

and I am sorry I titled this DIY as such but I explained though out the whole thread that this is just how to "paint" tubes really instead of actually heat treating.
