    I can no way back this up Quantitatively, but I would suspect for a short ram intake it would be better on intake temps to leave it open than to put a big metal box around it...remember, metals are conductors.

    Who knows how much radiant heat that box is actually absorbing and transferring to the intake. Heat soak is not a factor for short ram intakes, unless of course again you are sitting in traffic for long periods at 100deg temps. On the track or moving they are absolutely no problem, just like a radiator; as long as it's moving and there's airflow.

    It's been tested. Cai/sr intakes are jokes, only beneficial if your chasing dyno numbers and above 350hp at the wheels. Stock system is superior otherwise

    Well I think if the box had a negative effect, it would've documented in all the tests, derp

    If the box conducted "radiant heat" I donk subaru/Sti would mass produce them in their cars, let alone every other manufacturer. Don't you think the engineers would have caught that?? Smartass

    The Cobb box will conduct the radiant heat from the engine, it's metal. The stock intake system is plastic, a terrible conductor, so it won't. I was just presenting an idea, no need to be rude.

    I already did. Plus your typos and lack of proper punctuation don't help your case. Great post, God bless.
