Heat reflective tape on intake mani?

So ive got some left over heat shield tape and i was just wondering if there would be any benefit to covering the lower intake manifold on the blower or even taping up the blower its self even though its a source of heat.

Im just bored waiting for warmer weather and looking for stupid litlle things to do until I can install the kit lol

no benefit and it would look ugly if you did this. The intake manifold gets hot more so being bolted to the engine block than the ambient air under the hood. Phenolic spacer would be more benefit (but also minimal).

Covering a supercharger with tape would be hideous and detrimental. The charger body is supposed to dissipate heat.
