After reading the threads on cool air intake I decided to make a heat shield to fix between my ITG induction kit and the exhaust manifold.
Metalwork is not really my thing but I think it turned out ok ( Dave W notworthywill be the judge of that I hear you cry) I used a stainless steel kick plate from the bottom of a door.
Not sure if it will make any difference to performance but it looks nice and shiny when you lift the bonnet. shades
I'll also cover the intake hose in heat shield.

Instead of wrapping the original intake tube in heat shield I found heating/air conditioning aluminium flexible pipe ( rated to 130° )
The company also offered all the bends, connections etc to complete the job.
I was never happy with the original pipe crushed over the radiator so purchased the round to flat adapter which I held in place using a P clip and cable tie.

Thanks guys, I was happy with the result. When I took the original hose off I noticed the wire on the inside was rusty, obviously water been driving in through the grill.
If it continues to a problem I might fit a 45 or 90° bend to the entry.
I bought everything from i-sells ducting and ventilation, a Google search should bring them up.
