I get the logic, I just don't think it'll make enough of a different to make any type of performance benefit, too much heat soak. If you want true cold air intake, enclose the air element and run some inlet piping to somewhere outside the engine bay. I mean, you won't hurt performance, I just don't think it'll help enough to matter either.
