Icon5 Heating problem.. Any advice?

So I have a stainless steel header and downpipe and I had just recently purchased a Mishimoto radiator, and they both produce soo much heat.. Any advice on how to cool the temp down under the hood? I was thinkin about just putting a stock manifold back on. But I'm just not sure..

Re: Heating problem.. Any advice?

Would maybe using exhaust tape and wrapping it help?

Are you having overheating issues or are you just being extra cautious?

More cold air for the short ram yo

Wrapping with heat wrap will cool the engine bay down because it will keep the heat in the piping so to speak... But can cause issues with rusting pipes prematurely due moisture build up. If the reason behind cooling engine bay is for cooler air entering engine, most effective way is to throw on the stock intake... Or cold air intake routed into fender well.
Or you can make a shield around the short rams filter.

Total agreement with ProjectPrelude95 above.

Air density inversely proportional to rise in temperature!

Short rams look cool but rob performance. Besides you don't see them when your driving so why use them.

Cold air in the fender or stay stock with a good K/N filter.

Honda engineering did a fine job with their intake and it's tough to improve upon the design.

Re: Heating problem.. Any advice?

Running an unwrapped header shouldn't give you overheating issues. If you're having issues there is a problem elsewhere. Also, if you're trying to keep things as cool as possible; Water Wetter.

I didn't think op had an overheating issue, he just wants to refrigerate his engine bay, for whatever reasons

It's not a very smart idea but you can always make your thermostat stay stuck open, that will tremendously reduce heat.... Lol
