So the intake temps are deff lower even with just the cardboard and hvac wrap. I can't wait to make them out of aluminium.

I plan on doing something like this for my car at some point.

Just curious, the front cooling plate, does that have any real affect on cooling?

I did not have a plastic one, mine was Mia. No noticeable cooling effects yet, but I still need to reinstall splash guards. The air box has reduced the filter temps by 15deg or so
