Okay I can do that! I was going to put my stock air box back on, but I may have to rig that flap up...

I just looked at mine today and it had a few gaps. I took some adhesive foam tape about an inch thick and put it over the top, and them put the rubber strap back on. I also took off the snorkel while i was in there

Fingers crossed for this simple fix, but I doubt we can be that lucky.

I decided to test my theory on the hot air affecting the driveability here in Phoenix. The temp today is 105, car was doing the shuddering just off idle when taking off from a light. I took the car thru a car wash where the air temp dropped to 81. Just like magic the car takes off without any shudder after pulling out of the wash. The outside air temp stayed at 81 for at least 5 minutes and the car definitely runs much better.

Although not a scientific method of determining the effect of cooler air intake on driveability, this info can help us figure out a way for better running when hot. Now we just need to figure out how to keep the intake air cooler.
