Anyone know the best way to cool down an N/A intake manifold? I have air intake temps of 110 degrees plus :S I do have a CAI any opinions on DEI cool tape, and the smax ice tube?

Wrong section, but Phonelic spacers work wonders. Intake manifolds get hot due to the radiant heat from the heads

Couple buddies used Hondata intake manifold spacers and it dramatically helped their temps.

A thermal gasket but they still end up getting hot, just not as quick. If you have a coolant jacket that runs through the intake manifold, then you're SOL. The air is going to get hot at the engine anyways when it enters that cooking hot head and cylinder.
