Heat shield can only do so much. The main thing is that your engine bay in its entirety just gets really warm. And not to mention the piping of the SRI which is metal will also probably heat up and retain heat transfering to the moving air within.even with a heat shield?
Don't put any extra crap like mystery oil, lucas ect.. into you caru should take it for a spin at night oh another thing if u keep flooring ur car u loose hp. try engine restore.
I dont think a reset is required on anything, i see this so much in car forums. If the air flow is changed that much by an intake the stock fuel map wouldnt be able to handle it anyways. Running an open intake or no filter doesnt really increase that much air flow. Intake, header, cat back, hot plugs, timing advance (if this didnt have variable timing) and premium fuel would need a new fuel map to make it benefit, but the stock fuel map wouldnt make it run worse, it would just not run as best as it possibly could.Did you disonnect the battery to reset the ECU.
You should have reset the ecu and let it idle for about 20 minutes after you installed the intake so your car can learn the new parameters.
