Keep in mind that no matter where the air originates from, it is routed thru tubes which are inside your engine compartment and connected to your hot engine mounted throttle body..these plastic or metal air ducts pick up and hold heat from under the hood and heat the air as it makes contact and moves thru the ducts.....the very slight air temp differences between closed and open is so slight that I doubt it makes almost any difference at all, the biggest difference comes from having larger, smoother & straighter air ducts, plus a larger and less restrictive filter element, a check of the different manufactures rated HP and torque improvment claims might be a good place to start your evaluations...at least it offers some type of rated comparisons, beside price....none of them are going to turn a heavy 4X4 or 2X2 truck into an Indy Car...however, I know we all want as much bang for our buck as possible...and most of these systems are pretty comparible....If anyone brand was clearly superior in all respects, everyone would copy that design, and we would all be running the same system
