CACivic, you're right. The unlit cat temperatures are just begging me to reinstall my grill blocks, and if there's an improvement, to reinstall my WAI. I don't know if there's any relationship between air intake temperature and cat temperature, but the answer's only a test away.

And, in the spirit of Mech's "never surrender" advice, it's time to re-examine cat wraps and insulators. I think most of us recognize the elephant, Don Quixote & Sancho Panza aside. Now we have to deal with it.
