Either way, like header shields its blocking the heat from the intake tubes creating a buffer zone between the metal box and intake filter, at least that is what it appears to me. I am basing my opinion off of those folks who have put a bent piece of metal between their headers and brake lines to prevent the fluid from boiling due to an air gap. (I don't sell the aluminum ones by the way so please don't message me about them, JMB makes a high quality product in my eyes so please order from them, Only exception is their yellow is the wrong color for Gen 2)
I know this setup from JMB cost $400. How much do you think it cost to make it yourself. I already have some aluminum smooth tubes, it seems all i would need would be some cone filters.

What's the center hole used for on the box?

I do have the extended version for the cold air intake feature. I do see however in that camera angle how you can't see that.

I have awesome header heat shields that I fabbed from mirror polished stainless steel. Not worried about exhaust heat.

I was scoping these products today.

-> Lava Shield Mat by Heat Shield Products

-> Reflect A Cool by DEI

I don't have enough posts to post urls but there is at least one video of a direct burn test where the DEI tape lowered the temperature by over 100 degrees. You are probably right about the IAT's not changing much though. Do you still have the data from when you tested it?

Works, yes, but to what extent? A degree or three to me is meaningless.

I measure my IAT's every time I drive. My one gauge is just for that. I don't care much if it heats up even 20* while at a stop light, what matters is recovery time and temps while under motion.

As mentioned, radiant heat is one thing, there is still conductive, which is some cases is worse.

All comes down to, how much $$$ would you like to spend and for what results.

This is what everything comes down to when you really think about it. Thanks for the response!
