Reflect-A- Gold Tape

Posted by James Broadway on Jun 3rd 2020

I noticed very high intake air temperatures on my Volvo c30. In the summer, I was seeing that the MAF was reading about 140 degrees! Pre-turbo!! With 140F going into the turbo, (disregarding the additional heat soak of additional piping to get from MAF to turbo) at 10psi boost and 70% turbo thermal efficiency makes the turbo's discharge temp 274F... Reducing intake temp to 115F bring discharge down to 243F. 30 degrees less that my intercooler needs to deal with.
The engine bay is very cramped and very hot on this car. I liked the design of the stock cold air intake and air filter box, it just gets lots of heat soak (the radiator fan blows 200 degree air directly onto the box). I ended up covering the intake tube from in front of the radiator up to the air filter box and the pipe from after the air filter box to the turbo (these pieces get very heat soaked). I ran out of tape to cover my whole air filter box. I just ordered some more and will install it soon.
With only partial coverage, I have already seen approximately 20-30 degree lower Intake Air Temperature readings and less ignition timing pulled due to less knock. These numbers were taken on different days but similar ambient temperatures on the same highway and driving conditions.
I plan to cover the rubber intercooler piping with the Cool-Cover Gold air tube covers to help reduce heat soaking further.
I wholeheartedly endorse this product the reflect-a-gold tape. It is easy to apply and it stays in place. Most importantly, it works!

I love gold

It’s an amazingly effective product. Easy to go on & a noticeable drop in ambient temperature. That all of course adds to performance and better airflow. Plus it makes the engine bay look all kinds of sexy. A must for any performance build.

Love the look and very strong adhesive and helps a lot with my intake from not heatsoaking
