Default got bored with cold air intake

so i was cleaning my garage and found some header wrap from either my mustang days and or i used on my other harley thats long gone. but thats beside the point. i decided to take my ram for a ride using my dsp. i watch my ect. ait. and amb temp. on a 95 degree out coolant at 201 deg. my air temp was about 150 cruising around and would raise to 160 sitting in traffic. i went home and wrap pretty much the whole intake and double wrapped the part that goes over the engine. mind you my filter is down next to the lower rad hose so it gets the cold air coming under the truck up the fender wheel. well after wrapping the next day took for a ride. air temp out side 97 degrees coolant 202, driving around i was seeing air temp going into the engine around 119 cruising around. and sitting in traffic would climb up to 135 but once moving it would drop pretty quick, must get more wrapping and build a heat should. wonder if i can get it even cooler.
