View Full Version : Heat Shield

Anyone have any knowledge of heat shields that keep the intake air cooler? I notice my 500 is more peppy at start up, then loses something once hot. I know a cold air intake would help, but this is my commuter car. I can't have even a little worry about my air intake in the rain or around puddles. I was thinking a way to keep that air cool would be the way to go.

I'm sure you probably know this, but the computer richens the mixture and adjusts the timing when the engine coolant is cold and then changes those variables as the coolant temperature increases.
