    Looking for Box to limit hot engine bay air intake

    Back when I first got my 00 HD F150 (purchased new) I also bought one of the Air Force One CAI's, it now has an AFE Pro-Dry S filter but I'm looking for some type of box that can be installed with the AF1 intake tube to limit the amount of Hot Engine bay air it pulls in.

    if I use my ODBII Reader while driving, the intake air temp is the same as the ambient air temperature when going down the highway, but around town in the summer time especially, I can really tell the sluggishness of the hot air getting into the truck. It's sluggish and noticeable until I'm moving again.

    Pardon my dusty engine bay, I work in the oilfield and the truck sits on location for 14 days at a time in a 24 hr dust bowl essentially, I clean it on days off, but after going to work its looking pretty haggard again.

    What I think I know??? Which is very little...

    This is the correct URL link (below). The one in the prior post didn't work for me.

    Although the JLP has a bottom air intake the (under hood) top cover has lots of holes in it.
    The stock intake box did not have holes. The OEM setup connected to the fender for its air intake.
    IIRC my conversation with Kenne Bell was that OEM stock intake box worked very well up to 400hp.

    My feedback on this is based on the pic of your "dusty engine bay" with dirt getting into your CAI.

    Stock OEM air box.

    Jlp intake

    For some reason when I post the link here it won't connect, but going through google or whatever to "JLP Intakes" it goes thru

    Agree with Merlin- stock works up to about 400 HP.

    My beast goes on the dyno Monday and I should have it back Tuesday.
