He walk back in the shop and handed me a piece of tube he used on his XJ with the V8. I will check the IAT his weekend to see how much better it is. Thanks BJ, you rock!
I'd still add some shielding to that, maybe fab some kind of airbox. Instead of drawing hot air off the radiator you'll now be getting it off the exhaust manifold, and the hot engine comparment in general.
