Default Difference in Heat Retention under the Hood?

I have an 08 Turbo Lite, so it has the handsome black intake manifold cover. My question is, since the turbo generates more heat, and heat is bad, does the thick plastic cover retain any significant amounts of heat? Especially if you drive around for a couple of hours at 80 mph on a 90 degree day? Just wondered if anybody had any thoughts on this - I'm sure the Chrysler engineers factored all this in.....

The intake has really nothing to do with the air timp entering the engine. The air drawn in passes through the turbo through the piping around the the hot engine through the intercooler through some more piping then into the intake. So there is why you can't get cooler air to the engine.

THIS^^^^^

The intake is "incoming" air.....not any part of engine cooling system.
Put the cover in front of the radiator or intercooler....BANG!
Different story!

YES Busa, but most of your answers either have nothing to do with the question or they're just ramblings so we just skip over your answers and go on to the next answer.

It's something like the boy who cried Wolf. After awhile nobody paid attention to anything he said.

And I thought it was just me. Seriously Busa, I think you just like to stir the pot to get something going. But then out of the blue you will post a well thought out and on point response. I guess you can't help it that once in a while, one slips out. Then back to the pot.

All kidding your answer was straight to the point and accurate.

On other forums I have been told I write to long and technical explanations for things and should just answer much simpler or even YES or NO responses. On PT Forums I have been accused of not answering direct question and dancing around the answer with long responses? Hmm? Well at least by 2 members. So I personally have resolved to find that a definitive answer, yes or no, even if it is correct is never viewed as helpful and more sarcastic in nature.

The vanity cover, along with the molded foam liner, is "insulating" only in respect to intake and engine noise but not intake air heat.
