So I did the Newmission mod. Only issue is that I'm running a K&N Typhoon short ram instead of the stock box. That being said, a modified version of this mod still proved effective.
I bought a funnel and some pool hose from Lowes and made a version of this intake. The main difference is that since I have an aftermarket intake, I just ran the flexible hose right up to the pod filter.
Results? While cruising temps remained steady where they were before the modification, WOT runs were a whopping 40+ degrees less than it was without the mod. The intake temps before were peaking at 122. After the mods, it never topped 80 (for reference, today was 70 ambient). So, while it didn't do much for steady state, it certainly reduced heat recirculation in the air intake.

|SRH1776||Yeah, I'd hate to put a bird through my engine. Interesting. Mayne I should buy another triangle anf open it up just to use a screen.|

I ran that for a few days while I was waiting for a triangle piece I bought online to cut up.
It ran just as fine, but you should cover it up so nothing funky get in your engine bay.
I also read somewhere that removing the grills will mess a bit with your aerodynamics

|SRH1776||Yeah, possibly. I thought I saw on this thread that someone was thinking of doing that so they didn't have to tear up their OEM triangle piece.|

|Gi_Jo_Nathan||You talking about making about makeing some sort of scoop for the whole thing?|
|10-15-2015 03:15 PM|
|SRH1776||The whole triangle.|

|Gi_Jo_Nathan||The triangle, or the lower removable part of the triangle?|
|10-15-2015 02:20 PM|
|SRH1776||Just a follow up for this mod: did anyone ever try removing the entire triangle and running the mod without it in? I know some people discussed it but I didn't see any resolution on it.|

Very nice, looks like a much less invasive way to incorporate this.
