Get a scangauge tool. Plugs right into the obd2 port and you can watch all kinds of things, including air intake temps. I had a cone filter on and while driving I was getting 86deg fh. on a 80 degree day but while stopped I was getting high 120's. With my stock box back in on a 88 degree day I was getting 88-90 degree temps and while stopped I was only hitting 105 and that was stopped for a long time.
KISS Keep It Simple Stupid and stay stock with a drop in filter. There is plenty of noise if that is what you are after if you desnorkle.
