And also after a certain amount of time all materials will basically reach the same temperature...so if you have plastic pipe, it may take 15 minutes to reach say what 130 deg F or so, but with aluminum it would only take 10 minutes to reach the same temperature... I think there would be no real difference...

Just my opinion.

One other issue with using header wrap is that in order for it to "cure" properly it needs alot of heat from the tubing its wraping.. basicly needs to be baked on. I dont think intake tubing is going to be near hot enough for that to happen.

Heat gun. And I agree with the pipe heat issue. all that matters is the temp of the air entering the induction system. a CAI is any intake that pulls in air from OUTSIDE the engine bay. Most cars come like this with the airbox pulling in air from the fender or bumper. most people think a CAI is just a cool chrome pipe and a cone filter. The factory airbox is actually a decent setup. all you really need to do is upgrade the piping for better flow. of course, a cone filter sure looks and sounds a heck of alot better

No, you guys are right, the header wrap wouldn't make a huge difference, but any gain is better than none and for the amount you'd spend on it, probably worth it.

I've never actually used the stuff myself, but isn't header wrap really expensive? Like probably $50-$100 just to do a couple foot long intake tune?

Not really. We use it on rat rods all the time for the look alone. Usually white and we try to "dinge" it up a bit and make it look good and used.

Not really, I payed $30 shipped for some for my CBR 1000RR's exhaust and wrapped a good 4 or 5 feet of pipe in thick overlaps. But again.. I dont think there is any reason to do anything like this to intake tubing.

You are going to be sucking up hot engine air into that intake which will hurt performance. You need to get the air filter out of the engine bay or build a baffle box. All of those bends won't help you either.

Just so you know, You can heat & bend PVC pipe. Just take a propane torch, not a little hand held one but one that connects to a 30 lb tank. Slowly heat the entire pipe up & it will become pliable, then you can bend it & when it cools it will stay. That's how electricians bend PVC conduit. Then you can paint it & it won't have any elbows & will have a very clean look to it.
