            Not from me. The cooler the better and a poofteenth of RAM air is better than a vacuum in the airbox

                    Re: $6 Airbox heat shield

                    What about doing the underside of the tank? Would there be a benefit to have fuel a few degrees cooler?

                      Hmmm, I would not have needed to paint it after I did all my plastic-welding on it...

                      SO where did you get this stuff?
                      It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

                        At the home depot! Anywhere they sell stuff for installing hot water heaters should have it.

                          I'm doing fuel lines for sure, not sure about under the tank yet.
