hey guys I was wondering if any of you had ideas on how to make a heat shield for a short ram intake. I have a DC Sports short ram intake and i think if i would put a heat shield it would protect more my intake from the engine heat. so if you have any ideas just post it thanks.

You aren't going to do much but if you want to try it out they make some on ebay that wrap around part of your filter and are held on with the clamp. The most effective way is to isolate the filter and inlet air from the engine bay altogether.

I'm also looking to make a custom heat shield, specifically like the one sold by CT-Engineering. Has anyone successfully done this? I'm looking for specs/dimensions to save myself some time. I've seen some people cut up black rubbermaid trash bins and lined the edges with black weatherstrip which seems like a great affordable idea.
