Hey guys, I bought and installed the intake from procarparts, but notice that the piping is warm/hot after driving. I read somewhere that somebody's pipe is close to cool to the touch after driving. So here's the question, what kind of insulating material would you suggest to use for wrapping around the pipe (i believe it is done to some turboed cars). Is it just some cloth or a special kind that is treated? I think this would help performance considering the old saying, every drop in 10 degrees gives you an extra 1% hp or something, right? Thanks!

BTW... I found that it's cheaper at autozone than pep boys to get 1500 grit sandpaper for your headlights, but i still can't find that "scratch-x" stuff to use after the sanding. i forgot who makes it either. 3M? Mother's? Meguire's?

You could probably use the header wrap that most people use on race cars to keep the heat away from the engine. just wrap it around the intake and it should keep it somewhat cooler.

www.summitracing.com sell it for sure.

I used the 3M scratch remover on my G2 coupe headlights, but I'm sure the Meguire's or mother's would be better quality.
