Question about CAI and air temperature

I'm sure cold air intakes name is self explanatory. My question is obviously they work great during the summer time. But how well do they work in the winter when the air is already cold?

They work even better when it's cold. The only real "Cold Air" intakes are ones that draw in all the air from outside via a hood scoop or scoop that draws air from outside the engine compartment. Most of these so called CAIs really just isolate the area around the air filter so that it's cooler than the air in the engine compartment but it's not really cold air.

All cars wake up alittle in the cooler weather - the CAI assists.
