I suppose the best solution for a CAI would be to construct a SCA-like tube from carbon fibre. That way the cold air that comes in can actually STAY cold by the time it hits the throttle body. I've seen that Trevor's and Heather's CAI tube gets hotter than hell when the cars been sitting. The stock accordian tube will stop some heat transfer, and there's a CF Weapon-R, but the workmanship of the Weapon-R leaves much to be desired. You guys & gals with the 2000 Cougars are helped further- You have plastic MAFs, while us '99s have aluminum ones.

So to answer your question- Maybe some sort of thin insulative wrap around the tube? Ceremic coating would help, at the cost of the cool hi-polish look of the stock SCA CAI.
