Question for CAI guru's

We all know that the objective of the CAI is to get cold air to the engine. I live in Canada where we have cold winters. the temperature can even get down to -32 F but spends a lot of time between - 15 and 20 so the question is when is cold too cold. Will the super cold air sucked in by one of the CAI systems affect performance in a negative fashion?

I just purchased a Vararam from another forum member and am wondering if it would not be better to just add a K&N filter to the stock system for the cold winter months and use the Vararam for the spring to Autumn

what do the gurus have to say - recommendations?

I'm sure somewhere there are temps that are too cold, but likely to affect oil more than intake temps. I ran my Vararam during negative temps without issue. The fueling may be a little lean when the temps are that cold though.
