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.

CAI Opinion

Here's an option, keep the stock air box but get a full size color decal made of a CAI filter element and stick it to the top of the stock box. That way you will have a true CAI and still get the eye candy. For added sound, run a couple hoses from the tail pipes to the passenger compartment. JK
