His words were very clear.
It is not that simple. Ten degrees is nothing compared to what a turbocharger driven by 1000* exhaust gas will do.
I also built an air filter housing that was isolated and fed by the GT2 vents. On the street I notice no difference so I took it off as it was a huge PITA to get to anything in the engine bay with those hoses in the way. The GT2 tail is designed for ram air which doesn't do much until you sustain 100+mph.
There are a few folks here on the board who are data nuts and have measured temps in the area of the small filter. It's not significantly different than anywhere else in the engine bay.
