Roush CAI - running hotter?

Seems my inlet air temp skyrocketed after putting on a Roush CAI this weekend (no tune). The compartment seems to seal against the hood ok. I'm in Louisiana and it's pretty hot down here. Temps start out as normal 80-90 or so, but after sitting in traffic, I'm around 135 or so in the morning. I know sitting I'm not getting any airflow, and it does rapidly decrease once I get up to 45mph or so.

I can't remember what my gauge read with the stock air box. Anyone in the south in a humid climate, can you tell me what yours is reading as of late in a similar commute? 5.0 automatic.

Put your stock cold air intake back on. Iats will rise while sitting still with any intake though. But the roush vs stock. I would say that the stock intake is a better design. The roush may seal against the hood but how hot does your hood get in the sun plus a hot engine soaking heat into it? The stock box seals independent of the hood.

Just curious as every aftermarket CAI is open top pretty much, minus one or two. I can't imagine anyone else hasn't come across this. Or brought it up with AM or Roush themselves.

Well it would be a hard sell if they told people that thier intake temps would be higher with their "cold air intake". As long as it comes down as soon as you start getting some airflow impact on performance should be minimal.

If it helps anyone avoid this in the future, I ended up returning the intake. It was reaching 70 plus degrees higher than outside temps. American Muscle is fantastic with RMAs as usual.
