Depends on the air box design, most don't pull the hottest air from the middle of the engine bay. What I know for a fact is that every 10 degrees makes a difference in power delivery, so if you're sucking up the hottest air in the engine bay, it doesn't matter if you get more of it. Your car will start pulling timing, especially in the summer time if it gets hot where you're at.
