Not even lying I think this is like the most effective mod ive done personally. I may redo it and cover the whole hood area and leave a gap around the inverter.
Thanks hayden!

My only long term concern with the insulation is it fraying and bits getting caught where they shouldn't. I covered mine over with a Reflectix-like foil and aluminum tape to seal it in. I've been checking the air filter, engine bay, etc. every time I gas up (I have to check the oil anyhoo since it burns it). Thus far everything seems hunky dory. Woohoo!
Currently building Champrius 4.0! Follow starting here:

The goal is 70 mpg this time around.
