So, did anyone get this installed yet?

My filters and elbows showed up so I got to work installing everything. It's a pretty easy project, to remove the stock air boxes it's unlatch 4 clips per box, remove two bolts for each strut bar, and remove 3 bolts at the bottom of each airbox. I used some stick on weatherstripping under the strut bars and on top of the elbow just to hold everything in place.
I've only gone for a short drive so far to ensure everything was working properly. The sound change is subtle in my opinion, just a bit more induction noise from the intakes, and the blowoff valve is more audible now as well. I'm not sure if the car felt any faster so far, but I was more after the sound improvement and better airflow for when I do get myself a JB4.
I did purchase a pack of reflective material but I didn't have enough to do both shields.
What material did you find/purchase? What is the exterior height and length dimension so I'd know what size sheet of reflective material to get?I did purchase a pack of reflective material but I didn't have enough to do both shields.
Yeah, I felt the same. But figured intake temps were more important. Reflect-a-cool is the next best stuff. But they said the gold reflects around 17% more.Reflect-a-gold seems like it would be effective, but holy hell that stuff is garish looking. I'm worried if I put that in my engine bay it would be like a gateway to gold, next thing you know I would be getting gold teeth installed.
So about to pull the trigger on an intake - debating between;
69-5318TS K&N Performance Air Intake System
BMS Kia Stinger / Genesis G70 Performance Dual Intake, Dual Performance Filters, and Mounting Hardware
Both look pretty similar, except the BMS appears to use the lower portion of the OEM air filter housing, while the K&N doesn’t. Would one be better than the other in terms of getting cooler air into the turbos?
Thanks, I was partial to K&N anyway having used their drop-in filters in the past.
Have you seen the engine bay of the MacLaren F1 Road Car?Reflect-a-gold seems like it would be effective, but holy hell that stuff is garish looking. I'm worried if I put that in my engine bay it would be like a gateway to gold, next thing you know I would be getting gold teeth installed.
