Has anyone experienced shortened spark plug life after switching to a cold-air intake?

Guys,

thinking of sharing my CAI setup, see pix below


I have 2 air intakes, one at the front grill & one at the wheel arch, higher than first one, just in case of flood. I have been using this setup ~1 year without problem. Love the improvement, especially with 4-2-1 manifold

BTW, mine is a Zetec Euro
cheers
