Another BFI ??
 
am i missing something here...have searched a bit and cannot find anything that says or shows any type of heat shield with the BFI CAI. wouldn't that just allow hot engine compartment air to be pulled into the engine? other systems out there, in particular, the volant system have a seperate air box to shield the intake air from engine compartment heat. so, whats the deal?

The BFI intake is placed so far forward compard to the stock intake box. It actually ends up right by the side rad so it's getting cold air blown into it from the grille, unlike the stock setup and most other CAIs that only have the filter tube to bring air into a sealed box, restricting the flow. With the air flow from the grille right over the air filter, the engine bay heat transfer is minimal as the flow doesn't have time to heat through the venturi tube.

If you want a sealed box then S&B makes a good kit and its cheaper then volant because everything thats used is made in the USA. I like the sound S&B kits make its throaty and supposed to give more power then the others
