    Lagging the inlet pipe is an option, however if it does get hot it will heat up the inlet air inside. While it is on the same principle as ceramic coating, you can not get the lagging on the inside of the pipe to stop radiated heat where as the coating you can. Another cheaper option is to get a bit of Samco hose to use in it's place. Will also keep things looking tidy if you are into that. I also had a look at your pictures again and notice that you have not closed in the area underneath your shielding. Would pay off to make your filter fully isolated since you have gone this far with making it.

    With the throttle body, I would leave it be as they are plumbed in for a reason. The area of your throttle body is only fractional compared to the entire intake system. With this bit being the only thing left to transfer heat to the incoming air, I would not be worried if I was you.

    yes i am going t add a bottom to the sheild soon . i have a m50 manifold as you may have spotted the throttle body is bored to (big bore) but you cant see that. the butter fly is now alu think the standed one is brass of some sort any how when its heated up from the rad it expands alot and some times sticks if fine when engine is cold s geting rip of the hot pipes is going to help me in that way unless i can make a brass butter fly

    Well aluminium expands and contracts more than brass so can see where your problem is coming into play. Any decent engineering place should be able to knock you up a new butterfly valve to get you around that problem.

    As for spotting the differences...no I did not. I am a RB engine person really so can spot differences more there
