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.
