yeah I was wondering if it would act as an insulator and help keep air intake temps down?

guess I could get some thermocouples and find out. but not worth the time or money haha.

I think it could work both ways. If you're on the stock intake manifold, I'd bet it helps, at least a little. But w/ the RBC, especially if you aren't running a thermal gasket between the head and RBC, it probably wouldn't do much or hurt. So much heat gets transferred from the head to the RBC...
