Goto The Home Depot, and pick up one of those small plastic mailboxes and chop the front end of it off. I know a couple of people that have done that.

there is this stuff you can buy from summit and stylinconepts made to wrap around headers to stop them from heating up the engine bay, same concept you could buy that and wrap it around your intake,

really the air is moving so fast I don't think its in the intake pipe long enough to get hot.
