Hey all,
Had to replace my oem intake pipe on the afe airfilter because of a crack, replaced it with a 5.5in Aluminium pipe. Love the sound, but i noticed it gets 10-20 degrees hotter then usual... When towing the intake temp reached 107degrees on a 55* day!!

So i wrapped the exhaust manifold with fiberglass roll, seemed to help 2-4 degrees, but still hotter then usuall. As on a 50* day the intake temp could be 70-75 and towing in the 100s..

CAIs are all metal tubing usually so i dont understand how they dont heat up sence there right next to the manifold?

What can i easly do for improvement?

Should i wrap more of the exhaust and maybe the heat guard? Should i put a layer of wrap over the metal piping? IDEAS!

Thanks again and sorry for such a stupid question!
