As soon as these filters get here I'll let you know. Temps in the engine bay are easily around that temperature, but theres a chance that the air being intaked wont be.
Either way it's clear that any increase in temp is offset by the decrease in resistance, at least on the dyno
, which is what I will be testing. That is, if it will translate on the road or not. M&Ms testing was a good start, but I didn't really think it was empirical enough with to many variables between the comparisons.
