I don't think there's any question that the heat sent into the IM from the head isn't a good thing.  But how bad is it, is the question.
Now... you're asking me to buy a $160 part, and spend another $100 at the dyno?  Sounds silly for me to fork out $260 to tell everyone else if it's worth while or not... BUT, I'd probably do it, if it weren't such a huge PITA to remove the IM with the head in the car.

You're into experimenting, why not have one made for yourself (or buy
one from Autospeed), and try it on your dyno day? *makes evil grin*

I don't know about everyone else, but having a part of my intake tract
NOT in direct contact with an extremely hot piece pf metal (AKA the
head) seems like a great idea. I'll take all the unfair advantage I
can get. Gains HAVE been reported from those with turbo Audi motors,
as well as other makes.
