We will agree to disagree on that one. The rise in IAT had everything to do with the CAI installed on my car. Same day, very close to same conditions, same route/traffic. with original inlet & tube, yes IAT goes up in traffic. I expect that, but with CAI it goes up much more and takes longer to come back down. I did not notice any changes in driving or engine function at all. Just did not like the high IAT.
As mentioned above, there is a space around inlet tube and the air box on the Airaid unit that can draw in some hot engine compartment air.
