Closed Cold air intake for n54 engine?

Hi guys,

I'd like to know what's the best way to further cool the intake air by adding some cover to this aFe stage 2 intake system. I'm thinking maybe add a cover? so that the heat from the engine won't reach the cones. I'm thinking about using either heat insulating materials or carbon fiber to make a cover for the cones. Any suggestions?

This is what aFe intake looks like. This is a picture from the internet, my car has exactly the same intake kit.

AFE makes a cold air intake box. It's about $450.00.
