where in NY are you? Just moved here.

Anyway, yes, the cold weather will help, but not by any noticable difference.

im from syracuse.

I was asking about the cold weather because when i stall the cold air intake with the heat shield, will it run too cold in the winter? I know there's a temp that it runs best at and if it gets too cold how will it run. i dont want to ruin anyting

i remove mine in the winter, because my car plows in the snow, and the CAI gets all clogged up with snow.. typically you just put your stock air box back in or make a short ram intake. I decided to use the short ram intake.

Not hard at ALL.... if u can put gas in your car, putting in CAI or short ram intake is a breeze .... you do know how to use a wrench right!
