Now if the ford temp gauge was off I could understand, I still think merging the 2 might have bigger benefits. Then again I could be horribly wrong.
yeah more airflow with colder air can get below ambient, i re-read his thread from the start, I agree with you that doing both would probably have a bigger benefit than either one individually. newmission went cheap on parts, I would probably modify similar to what you are doing with black mesh and would probably then cover it with a custom outerwears prefilter. I think there probably even more possibilities that havn't been done yet.
basically what his mod is adding a second air pipe to the intake, and doesnt affect the existing piping, so there might be changes to be made there to make it more efficient.
