That doesn't matter. It still causes issues with the IAT sensor, and will require adjustments to the MAF scaling.Originally Posted by wrx1234

Also, the location of the filter can introduce turbulence which can be an issue with MAF scaling.
I have a perrin cold air intake on mine. (Although on a 2013) and my intake temps are nearly exactly what they were with the stock box. ~20 degrees +-5 over ambient at most. IMO it was worth it for sound alone. The extra power was a bonus lol

The temperature of the air entering the intake still effects the temperature and density of air entering the engine. . but according to the testing I did with my old SRI, as long as your car is moving 30mph or more the air entering a SRI will be virtually the same temperature as air from the fender well where a CAI would be. SRI is really only a hot air intake while the car is stationary,but due to how the ECU works that can bring your power levels down (for a short time) while moving too.
