: Steel VS. Plastic Air Intake

08-13-08, 09:47 PM
I was cleaning my K&N air filter. Before I pulled it out, the intake pipe was incredibly hot. A Plastic and black pipe might have something to do with it. I live in Florida and the avg temp outside is 104 F. Would steel pipe help or just a waste of money? I can got to autozone and get the steel air intake kit. My main question is why so HOT and what can I do about it. I thought putting K&N filter would solve this but no that much.
