I just need to maybe heatwrap the heatshield and paint it and then it's done.

I also cut almost all of the plastic out of my lower grill to allow more airflow.

are you running some kind of tubing from the lower grill up to your intake? if so, do you have some pics?

Not yet. My heatshield is actuall to peices of metal spaced about an inch and a half apart and boxed together. I am going to run a tube from the lower grill in between the heatshield and try to keep that cold.

not trying to hate. really, BUT why do people think that putting a big cone on, and swapping out existing plastic for metal will make things cooler (IATs)???

It all depends how it is done and I truthfully don't know at this point if it will keep the air as cool. As you can see in the first pic the heatshield is boxed and I am going to run a hose from the lower grill to it. I am hoping it keeps the air at least as cool.
