@  scottydoggs98 : (17 December 2017 - 12:21 AM)

only hear it when the wheels spin free, dead stop, or rolling spinning, same sound. not a single rattle or any thing else, as long as they dont spin

@  scottydoggs98 : (17 December 2017 - 12:21 AM)

@  scottydoggs98 : (17 December 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Some random data I decided to pay attention to tonight.. I still have the factory untouched air box on my 04 gs, while cruising tonite ext temp was 41°-42°, ats shown on scan master was 50°-52°. Pulled into driveway and after idling for ten minutes it rose to 110°. Just thought I'd share, will be in installing zzp CAI at some point soon be interesting to see the difference if any..

wow a 50+ deg increase?.....better keep cruising around....dont stop anywhere.....lol.... I wonder what the fender intake temps would be vs a thermo wrapped box?....I know inside my SLP box I put some thermo shield material I had laying around....never thought about before and after readings.

Yep, normal.  Wait until the outside temps get up into the 80's.  You'll see some big numbers while sitting still.  But they will drop off pretty quickly once you are rolling again.

Its heat soak...if you wrap your airbox and F-duct in Reflectix or other reflective material you can greatly slow down the rate of heat soak.  I did a post about it about 10-12 years ago. lol  Used both a gutted airbox, open cone, and I think also my MSP airbox.  Its been a while....

That brand sounds fimiliar, I used some reflective heat shield material I got from summit when I was doing my diy oven for powder coating...I also opened up my slp box's inlet to the fender hole and sealed the opening with a thick rubber seal....I was thinking I would pull some numbers today but the wife took the regal as her gtp is getting an oil change....I was thinking of adding a larger filter as the slp setup uses a smaller cone.

Used to be able to get Reflectix at Lows, not sure if you can still get it there.  Its cheap, basically reflective bubble wrap.  Jack44 even made an intake out of it back in the day.

my question to the OP is why the zzp CAI? Unless you are going for aesthetics go for a chheap DIY route of PVC or the flex tubing you can get at intense.
