For the original air inlet into the airbox, I shoved a rag into it..
That is all..
That's great for the winter.
What are you going to do when the temp outside is in the 80's and the air coming from around the manifold is over 200+?

Didn't the airbox have an intake air temperature blend door??
I can't think of my last vehicle that did not have one.
There was even heat riser blend door on my 79 chevy monza.
