i have had the Short Ram for about a year now and i have never had any problems regarding heat soak, and i dont have a heat shield. I think you really only have to worry about it in the dead of summer if your sitting in traffic.

don't get me wrong ever since i got my Short Ram i felt nothing but gain (but i think i lost some on the low end like expected). i just wondered that if it DID happen i would know what to do. because i hear if heat soak happens you get worse performance than the stock Air Filter. i just wanted to know also if anyone had good experience with the heat sheild..or if it's just an ornament.

BTW-heat soak is when you leave your engine running for a while and the temp under your Hood increases your Short Ram is sucking in hot air hampering performance.

Should have gone with CAI. Would a raised Hood scoop help this problem you guys have? Or how about those new Carbon Fiber hoods (invader and BRS)?
