Thanks. The intake tube is wrapped in this:

And the box is covered with this:

You did a good job. Do you have anything monitoring the intake temperature? I'm curious what your intake temps are compared to mine.

Just an FYI in case it happens to you, Volants are bad for throwing codes. It is usually the seal where the MAF sensor plug is or the provided connectors don't seal perfectly against the throttle body.
Thanks. I don’t have anything as of now monitoring the the air temperature. The real test will be whether I see any changes in MPG’s. I also had it on for a good month before I removed it to seal the box and I didn’t have any codes pop up then so hopefully nothing will pop up now.

Thanks. Hopefully some other people pull the trigger on sealing up their boxes too if they’ve been hesitant to. This was the first time I ever used fiberglass or bondo so as long as someone has the patience and a little mechanical aptitude, it’s not that difficult to get done in an afternoon.

And now - you didn't have to move the horn didja !
Thanks guys. I couldn’t find any step by step instructions on how to do it so I figured I’d take some photos while I did it write it up. 👍
