    Brake Duct cooling?

    Hey anyone keep track of their Intake temp using cobb AP? I have a a cobb sri and box and it gets so hot I cant even touch it after driving. Cruising temps are 70 F while driving on freeway at 65 -75mph. Air temp 55 f near ocean. City traffic my temps were 138 F and up.

    So I was going to buy a brake duct/intake cooler from rallysport but its like $350, but was tapped out after buying the AP and SRI plus box, So I took off my stock fog light cover and got my dremel and put some holes in the mesh plastic. I was going to replace with metal mesh and paint black but this was so much easier. I think metal mesh painted black would look better though. Cant really notice the holes but i will do some data logs with AP and see how the temps are after this was done.

    This is a good mod. I do not have the Cobb SR w/ box but I have read through many posts several months back about IATs being quite high. I believe some used reflective tape to cover the intake box in order to keep heat away from the intake. The increased IATs during stop and go traffic is something that steered me away from getting and aftermarket intake.
